A seaside village and popular vacation resort boasting some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most recognized for its ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well regarded for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get known as a beach resort in Victorian times, because of the building of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of an ancient timber bridge. The village is just as favoured today as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The beach areas at this point are located on the easterly coast of The Wash, this means that it is one of the rare beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It's possibly approximately 5,000 years since the 1st human settlers showed up in the region close to Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was likely not until the 5th century that the earliest real village was founded there. The name is possibly derived from the title of a Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence that this is true. A further explanation is that the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time consisted of 143 households (making it fairly large for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest this area was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving building in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church recall the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died three years later, though she left behind a son called Tom, who later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. 4 years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the venture has evolved enormously, and new types have been raised. The lavender is currently sold all throughout the world.
