A village and well known holiday destination featuring some fine beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 4,707 people and is probably most commonly known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore well regarded for its fields of lavender, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become known as a coastal resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, a result of the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties in order to replace an oudated wooden bridge. Heacham remains popular nowadays as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan parks.

The seashores in this area are placed upon the eastern shores of The Wash, which means it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's undoubtedly around five millenia since the earliest settlers emerged in the vicinity near Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation continued there thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, although it was most probably not until the 5th century that the earliest proper village was set up there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the name of a local Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is true. A second idea is that the name originates from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then was made up of one hundred and forty three households (rather big for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 this area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still older, dating from about 1100, one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet within the church recount the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died three years later, though she gave birth to a son named Tom, he later returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the enterprise has evolved greatly, and unique types have been bred. Lavender is today sold all throughout the world.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately 5 kilometres (three miles) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
