A village and popular vacation resort having some excellent beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of about five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get fashionable as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, simply because of the arrival of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. That also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the dated timber bridge. Heacham continues to be well loved nowadays as a seaside resort, with both the South and North Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are situated on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, consequently it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is in all probability more than five millenia since the first human settlers arrived in the area close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was perhaps not till the 5th century when the earliest real village was founded there. The name of the village 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 isn't any compelling evidence that this is a fact. A further explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted down in the 1086 Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment was made up of 143 households (rather big for this period) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the region was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest remaining building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not still earlier, dating from roughly 1100, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church recount the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she left behind a son, Tom, he subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there was destined to be one hundred acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the venture has expanded dramatically, and brand new varieties have been bred. Lavender is these days sold all over the world.
