A village and popular holiday resort with some fine beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly five thousand people and is perhaps best known for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also known for its fields of lavender, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get known as a beach resort in the 19th century, because of the arrival of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of the ancient wood bridge. The village is still popular today as a coastal resort, with both South Beach and North Beach replete with caravan parks.

The shorelines here are placed upon the easterly coast of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It is more than likely roughly five thousand yrs since the initial settlements occurred in the vicinity close to Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was almost certainly not till the 5th century when the 1st true village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps derived from the name of a Norman Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any strong evidence that this is true. One additional possibility is, the name derives from the local River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment supported one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty big for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the neighborhood was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier than this, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet within the church recall the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died three years later, nevertheless she left a son called Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and related products. By 1936 there would be over a hundred acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the company has expanded enormously, and fresh varieties have been produced. Lavender is now sold all throughout the world.
