A coastal village and well known vacation destination with some superb beaches, Heacham is positioned in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of approximately four thousand seven hundred occupants and is perhaps most recognized for its link with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore known for its lavender fields, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get known as a holiday resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, as a consequence of arrival of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the 1860s. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven replacing the olden wooden bridge. The area is still favoured these days as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beaches lined with camping and caravan parks.

The seashores at this point are placed upon the eastern banks of The Wash, meaning it is one of very few beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's History: It is more than likely more than 5 millenia since the initial human settlements took place in the region surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this. Human settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, even though it was more than likely not till the fifth century that the earliest proper village was set up there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a local Lord during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no strong evidence of this. The other idea is that the name was taken from the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the 1086 Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days comprised one hundred and forty three households (rather substantial for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest remaining structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth even earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church recount the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she left behind a son called Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the objective of growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. Four years later there would be a hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the company has evolved appreciably, and new types have been created. The lavender is these days sold all over the world.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (fourteen miles) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
