A seaside village and well known vacation resort alongside some excellent beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of roughly four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is possibly best known for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become popular as a holiday resort in Victorian times, due to the arrival of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's taking the place of the olden wooden bridge. The village remains favoured nowadays as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beaches being replete with camping and caravan sites.

The beaches at this point are located upon the easterly coast of The Wash, this means that it is one of the few beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is likely approximately 5 millenia since the initial settlements manifested in the area around Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was probably not till the fifth century when the 1st real village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence of this. Yet another possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham back then included one hundred and forty three households (quite large for the time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not still earlier than this, dating from around 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church recount the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, but she left a son named Tom, he subsequently went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of growing and processing of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Since those early years the venture has grown dramatically, and brand new types have been propagated. Lavender is now sold all throughout the world.

The village can be accessed via the the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
