A village and popular holiday destination with some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of roughly 5,000 inhabitants and is perhaps most widely known for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is also reputed for its fields of lavender, harvested by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get known as a sea side resort in Victorian times, due to the opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. That resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to replace the olden wood bridge. The village is still favoured nowadays as a seaside resort, with both South and North Beach lined with camping and caravan parks.

The seashores in this area are placed on the easterly shoreline of The Wash, this means it's one of the few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's likely approximately 5,000 years since the first settlers emerged in the region around Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was quite possibly not until the 5th century that the earliest actual village was founded there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the title of a Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any strong evidence that this is true. One more idea is, the name comes from the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time was made up of one hundred and forty three households (quite sizeable for this time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was controlled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth still older, dating from approximately 1100, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she gave birth to a son, Tom, he eventually 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 founded in the village with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the business has evolved appreciably, and new types have been bred. The lavender is today sold all around the world.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately 3 miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from Kings Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
