A village and well known holiday resort offering some exceptional beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about four thousand seven hundred occupants and is possibly best known for its links with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become fashionable as a beach resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, simply because of the establishing of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace an old wood bridge. Heacham remains well loved today as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being peppered with caravan parks.

The seashores here are placed on the easterly shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of the only beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is more than likely roughly five millenia since the 1st human settlements appeared in the vicinity near Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement remained there all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was probably not till the 5th century that the first genuine village was established there. The name of the village is claimed to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any solid evidence that this is true. One additional thought is, the name originates from the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then had 143 households (rather big for the times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the village was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than this, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, though she gave birth to a son named Tom, he eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the enterprise has expanded appreciably, and brand new varieties have been bred. Lavender is now sold all around the world.
