A seaside village and well known vacation destination having some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about four thousand seven hundred occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is additionally known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be well liked as a coastal resort in the nineteenth century, after the building of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven to replace the olden wooden bridge. The area is just as favoured these days as a beach resort, with both South and North Beach peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches here are placed on the east banks of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It's undoubtedly around 5,000 years since the first human settlers turned up in the area near Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was very likely not till the 5th century when the earliest true village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is reported to be derived from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any firm evidence that this is true. One additional explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time had one hundred and forty three households (making it rather substantial for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the village was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest surviving building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church outline the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, still she left a son, Tom, he subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. A few years later there would be 100 acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the venture has evolved dramatically, and brand new types have been produced. Lavender is now exported all around the world.

The village can be entered from the the A149 or the B1454, it is about 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 22km (fourteen miles) from King's Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
