A seaside village and popular vacation resort having some fine beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most commonly known for its historic links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also well known for its fields of lavender, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become popular as a sea side resort in the 19th century, because of the coming of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 in order to replace the old timber bridge. Heacham still is well-liked these days as a coastal resort, with both South and North Beach dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches in this area are placed upon the eastern banks of The Wash, this means that it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It's in all likelihood around 5,000 years since the first settlers emerged in the area around Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century when the 1st true village was set up there. The name is perhaps taken from the title of a local Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any firm evidence that this is true. An additional thought it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days supported 143 households (making it pretty big for the period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest this area was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest remaining structure in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still earlier than this, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church record the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she produced a son called Tom, who eventually returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there would be 100 acres under cultivation. Since then the company has evolved dramatically, and fresh new types have been created. The lavender is nowadays sold all throughout the world.
