A village and popular vacation destination alongside some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a population of roughly 4,707 occupants and is probably most famous for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who came from Heacham. The village is additionally widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be popular as a tourist resort in the mid-19th century, just after the arrival of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties replacing an oudated wood bridge. The area continues to be popular these days as a beach resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are found upon the eastern shores of The Wash, therefore it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is most certainly around 5,000 years since the first human settlements took place in the region surrounding Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was in all likelihood not till the 5th century when the 1st proper village was set up there. The name is said to be taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no reliable evidence that this is a fact. A further idea is that the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time contained 143 households (making it rather substantial for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest surviving building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not still older than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church recount the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died 3 years later, however she produced a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being created between local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. Four years later there would be over one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the venture has expanded appreciably, and brand new types have been raised. Lavender is today exported all around the world.

The village can be go to from the the A149 or the B1454, it is approximately three miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
