A seaside village and well known holiday destination having some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 5,000 occupants and is possibly most famous for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a coastal resort in Victorian times, immediately after the coming of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace the olden wood bridge. The area is still well-liked these days as a seaside resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being dotted with caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are placed on the east banks of The Wash, which means it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is undoubtedly around 5 millenia since the 1st settlers arrived in the region near Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of this. Habitation continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, whilst it was possibly not till the fifth century when the earliest genuine village was founded there. The name is claimed to be taken from the title of a Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no compelling evidence of this. A different idea it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment included 143 households (making it quite big for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the region was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually still older than the church itself, dating from around 1100, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet inside the church recount the historic ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died three years later, though she left a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there would be over 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the company has expanded appreciably, and fresh varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is these days sold all around the globe.
