A village and well loved holiday destination offering some great beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately 5,000 occupants and is perhaps most recognized for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its fields of lavender, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become popular as a beach resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, with the coming of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's taking the place of the olden wood bridge. Heacham still is well loved today as a seaside resort, with both the South and North Beach peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The beach areas in this area are placed upon the east banks of The Wash, which means it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's very likely roughly five thousand years since the earliest settlements appeared in the region near Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation remained there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was more than likely not until the fifth century that the first real village was founded there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any reliable evidence that this is the truth. A different theory is that the name was taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time supported one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly sizeable for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even older, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church recount the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she died 3 years later, but she left a son named Tom, who eventually 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 set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. Four years later there was destined to be one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since then the company has grown significantly, and fresh types have been produced. The lavender is now sold all over the world.
