A seaside village and well known vacation destination next to some exceptional beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about 4,707 people and is possibly most commonly known for its historic ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also known for its lavender fields, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be known as a beach resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, after the establishing of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the old wooden bridge. The area is still well-liked today as a coastal resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach replete with caravan parks.

The seashores here are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, therefore it's one of the rare beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is possibly around five thousand years since the first human settlers turned up in the region close to Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was almost certainly not until the 5th century that the 1st true village was founded there. The name is considered to be taken from the name of a local Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no reliable evidence that this is a fact. The other theory is, the name was taken from the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times contained one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly sizeable for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently governed by Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in fact still earlier, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet within the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nevertheless she left behind a son named Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there were a hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early times the company has evolved greatly, and brand new varieties have been created. The lavender is currently sold all throughout the world.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, 22km (14 miles) from King's Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
