A coastal village and popular vacation destination with some fine beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around five thousand inhabitants and is probably most commonly known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its lavender fields, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become popular as a beach resort in the mid-19th century, just after the opening of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 in order to replace the obsolete timber bridge. The area continues to be popular these days as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beaches being peppered with camping and caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are positioned upon the east shores of The Wash, meaning it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The History of Heacham: It's most likely approximately five millenia since the initial settlements manifested in the area surrounding Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was quite likely not until the 5th century that the 1st true village was founded there. The name is possibly taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any solid evidence that this is true. Still another idea it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days consisted of 143 households (making it rather substantial for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest existing structure in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth still earlier than this, dating from roughly 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she provided John with a son, Tom, he later on went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there would be over 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the enterprise has grown dramatically, and fresh varieties have been nurtured. The lavender is now exported all around the world.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 or the B1454, it is around three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
