A village and popular holiday destination featuring some great beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately 4,700 inhabitants and is probably most widely known for its historic ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also reputed for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a sea side resort in Victorian times, right after the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven to replace an ancient timber bridge. The village still is favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being replete with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas here are found upon the easterly shores of The Wash, this means that it is one of the few beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It's probably roughly 5 millenia since the initial human settlers arrived in the area around Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of that. Settlement continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, however it was in all likelihood not until the 5th century that the earliest proper village was set up there. The name is said to be taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence of this. A second theory is, the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time comprised 143 households (making it quite large for the period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest surviving structure in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even older than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, but she left a son named Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall survived for centuries 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 involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres under cultivation. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has expanded considerably, and unique varieties have been nurtured. The lavender is these days exported all around the world.
