A seaside village and well known holiday destination featuring some great beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately 5,000 people and is probably best known for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is also well known for its fields of lavender, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a coastal resort in the time of the Victorians, due to the establishing of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties replacing the dated wood bridge. Heacham still is well-liked today as a coastal resort, with both South and North Beaches being replete with camping and caravan sites.

The beach areas at this point are situated on the easterly coast of The Wash, consequently it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It's most likely approximately five thousand years since the first settlements manifested in the area around Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was probably not till the 5th century that the first actual village was established there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence of this. Another idea it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times was made up of 143 households (rather big for the time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was overseen by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining building in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church outline the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, still she provided John with a son called Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. By 1936 there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early years the enterprise has grown greatly, and fresh new varieties have been bred. Lavender is today sold all throughout the world.

The village can be accessed by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
