A seaside village and popular holiday resort boasting some excellent beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of approximately 4,707 people and is probably most famous for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is furthermore reputed for its fields of lavender, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be known as a tourist resort in Victorian times, simply because of the coming of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 to replace the dated timber bridge. Heacham continues to be favoured today as a beach resort, with both North and South Beach peppered with caravan and camping parks.

The shorelines in this area are located upon the easterly banks of The Wash, therefore it is one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

History of Heacham: It is undoubtedly more than 5,000 years since the earliest settlements took place in the area surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was possibly not until the fifth century that the first real village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any compelling evidence that this is a fact. One more idea is, the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then supported 143 households (pretty big for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet in the church tell of the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she passed away three years later, though she gave birth to a son called Tom, who later returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there would be over one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the venture has evolved considerably, and new types have been reared. Lavender is currently exported all around the globe.
