A seaside village and well loved holiday resort boasting some fine beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of about 5,000 inhabitants and is probably most recognized for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its lavender fields, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become popular as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, with the opening of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of the old wooden bridge. The area continues to be well-liked nowadays as a tourist resort, with both North and South Beaches being lined with caravan sites.

The beach areas in this area are located upon the easterly banks of The Wash, this means that it's one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is most likely more than 5 millenia since the initial human settlers colonized in the vicinity close to Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was in all probability not till the 5th century that the earliest genuine village was established there. The name is claimed to be derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any compelling evidence that this is the truth. One additional explanation is that the name derives from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted down in the 1086 Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times had one hundred and forty three households (making it rather large for the times) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving building in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is in truth still earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church remind visitors of the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died three years later, though she provided John with a son called Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the objective of producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has grown appreciably, and fresh new varieties have been reared. Lavender is today sold all around the world.

Heacham can be reached by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is approximately 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22 kilometres) from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
