A coastal village and well loved holiday destination with some exceptional beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately 4,707 occupants and is possibly most recognized for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also reputed for its lavender fields, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be well liked as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, with the opening of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of the old wooden bridge. The village is just as popular today as a holiday resort, with both the South and North Beaches being replete with caravan sites.

The beach areas here are placed on the eastern shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is perhaps roughly five millenia since the 1st human settlements materialized in the area close to Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of that. Human settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, while it was in all likelihood not till the 5th century when the earliest true village was founded there. The name is perhaps taken from the title of a Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any strong evidence that this is the truth. Still another thought is, the name was taken from the local River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time contained 143 households (quite big for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later controlled by Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is actually still older than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet in the church recall the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away three years later, nonetheless she left a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being created between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. A few years later there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early times the enterprise has grown substantially, and newer varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is today exported all around the world.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 or the B1454, it is about three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
