A coastal village and well known holiday destination with some awesome beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most recognized for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is additionally known for its fields of lavender, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become popular as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, as a consequence of coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's taking the place of the ancient wood bridge. The village still is popular nowadays as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being dotted with caravan parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed on the easterly coast of The Wash, this means that it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The History of Heacham: It's more than likely more than five thousand yrs since the initial human settlers showed up in the region near Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of this. Habitation continued there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, whilst it was possibly not until the fifth century that the 1st actual village was established there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the title of a Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is a fact. One more possibility it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then supported one hundred and forty three households (fairly big for this period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest the village was overseen by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact still older, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is 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 indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she left a son called Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there were 100 acres being cultivated. Since those early times the company has expanded significantly, and fresh new varieties have been produced. The lavender is now sold all over the world.
