A village and well known holiday resort having some exceptional beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most commonly known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The area is furthermore well known for its lavender fields, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a tourist resort in the time of the Victorians, simply because of the coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. That culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace the ancient wood bridge. Heacham remains well-liked these days as a holiday resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are set on the east banks of The Wash, this means it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is almost certainly roughly five thousand years since the earliest settlements materialized in the vicinity around Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was possibly not till the fifth century that the first real village was established there. The name is quite possibly taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any firm evidence that this is true. An additional possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment in time was made up of one hundred and forty three households (fairly sizeable for the period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was controlled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign along with a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she left a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has grown considerably, and brand new varieties have been created. The lavender is today exported all around the globe.
