A village and well known holiday destination having some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately 5,000 inhabitants and is possibly best known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore reputed for its lavender fields, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be well liked as a sea side resort in the 19th century, with the arrival of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the olden wood bridge. The area is just as favoured nowadays as a tourist resort, with both the North and South Beach being peppered with caravan parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is certainly around five millenia since the 1st human settlers emerged in the vicinity near Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Habitation remained there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was most probably not till the 5th century that the earliest true village was established there. The name of the village is perhaps derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence that this is a fact. A second explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it rather big for this period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was overseen by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church recall the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, however she left a son, Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the goal of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there were a hundred acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the venture has expanded considerably, and newer varieties have been raised. Lavender is these days exported all over the world.

The village can be accessed from the the A149 or the B1454, it is about 5 kilometres (three miles) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (fourteen miles) from Kings Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
