A village and well loved vacation destination with some awesome beaches, Heacham is positioned in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 4,707 occupants and is probably most recognized for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also known for its lavender fields, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get well liked as a seaside resort in Victorian times, mainly because of the coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. That culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties replacing an out of date wooden bridge. The area is just as well-liked today as a coastal resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being replete with caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed upon the east banks of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

A History of Heacham: It's certainly roughly five thousand years since the 1st settlements took place in the area near Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of that. Settlement persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was in all probability not till the 5th century that the first true village was established there. The name is supposed to be taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no solid evidence that this is the truth. The other theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage consisted of 143 households (rather substantial for the period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest existing structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still earlier, dating from roughly 1100, one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church tell of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away three years later, but she left behind a son, Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there were a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the business has evolved substantially, and different types have been created. Lavender is now exported all around the world.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from Kings Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
