A seaside village and well loved holiday resort having some fine beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about 4,707 inhabitants and is possibly most commonly known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is also known for its lavender fields, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be known as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, due to the opening of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in the 1880's replacing the ancient wood bridge. Heacham continues to be favoured today as a tourist resort, with both North and South Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It's in all likelihood more than five millenia since the first settlers arrived in the region near Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, although it was perhaps not till the 5th century when the first actual village was set up there. The name is said to be derived from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is the truth. An additional thought it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book (1086) to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then consisted of 143 households (making it rather big for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was ruled by two 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, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest surviving structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier than the church itself, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church recount the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, however she left a son called Tom, who later on returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the venture has grown dramatically, and different types have been reared. Lavender is now exported all around the globe.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately 3 miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles from King's Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
