A coastal village and popular vacation resort alongside some great beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of around four thousand seven hundred people and is perhaps most commonly known for its historic ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who came from Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its lavender fields, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, as a consequence of opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven to replace the ancient timber bridge. Heacham still is favoured today as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beaches being lined with caravan parks.

The beaches in this area are located upon the easterly banks of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of the few beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is most likely over five millenia since the 1st settlers showed up in the vicinity close to Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of this. Human settlement continued there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, whilst it was most likely not till the fifth century when the earliest real village was set up there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence of this. A different theory it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then comprised one hundred and forty three households (pretty sizeable for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the region was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest remaining building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign together with a tablet within the church outline the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, though she produced a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since then the company has grown dramatically, and unique types have been reared. Lavender is nowadays sold all over the world.

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