A village and popular vacation destination next to some terrific beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately 5,000 people and is probably most widely known for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well regarded for its lavender fields, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become fashionable as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, due to the coming of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's replacing the ancient wooden bridge. The area is still favoured today as a seaside resort, with both the South and North Beach being lined with caravan sites.

The shorelines in this area are placed on the easterly coast of The Wash, meaning it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's History: It's possibly roughly five thousand years since the first settlers showed up in the area around Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of that. Settlement continued in the area all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was quite possibly not till the fifth century that the first actual village was established there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence that this is a fact. A different thought is that the name derives from the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the 1086 Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days supported 143 households (rather substantial for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the village was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she produced a son, Tom, who later on went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early times the venture has grown considerably, and new varieties have been reared. Lavender is currently exported all around the world.

The village can be go to from the the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 5 kilometres (three miles) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
