A seaside village and popular holiday destination having some superb beaches, Heacham is positioned 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 resident population of about four thousand seven hundred occupants and is probably most recognized for its historic ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The village is also well known for its lavender fields, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a beach resort in the mid-19th century, simply because of the establishing of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to replace the olden wooden bridge. The village remains popular nowadays as a beach resort, with both South Beach and North Beach peppered with caravan sites.

The beach areas here are found upon the eastern banks of The Wash, this means it's one of the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It's certainly more than five millenia since the initial human settlers showed up in the area around Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was possibly not until the fifth century when the first genuine village was founded there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any solid evidence that this is a fact. An additional idea is, the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage incorporated one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly large for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is actually still earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church recount the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died three years later, but she produced a son named Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the enterprise has grown appreciably, and newer types have been nurtured. The lavender is today sold all around the globe.
