A village and well loved vacation destination featuring some fine beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of around 5,000 inhabitants and is possibly most recognized for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is also known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get known as a holiday resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, a result of the establishing of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 taking the place of an out-of-date timber bridge. The village remains favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being lined with camping and caravan sites.

The beach areas at this point are positioned on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, meaning it's one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's in all likelihood over five thousand years since the first settlements manifested in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement continued in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was likely not until the 5th century when the earliest real village was founded there. The name is possibly derived from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any firm evidence of this. A further explanation it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage comprised one hundred and forty three households (fairly substantial for the period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving structure in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is in truth even older than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died three years later, still she produced a son named Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Since those early days the business has evolved dramatically, and newer types have been raised. Lavender is now exported all around the globe.

The village can be go to via the the A149 and the B1454, it is about three miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22km) from King's Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
