A seaside village and popular holiday destination adjacent to some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately five thousand people and is possibly most recognized for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who came from Heacham. Heacham is additionally known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get known as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, simply because of the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the 1860s. That also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties taking the place of an old wood bridge. The village is still well loved these days as a tourist resort, with both North and South Beaches being replete with camping and caravan sites.

The seashores in this area are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, this means that it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is most certainly roughly 5,000 years since the earliest settlers emerged in the region close to Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was in all likelihood not until the fifth century when the first actual village was founded there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a local Norman Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any solid evidence that this is true. A second possibility it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times supported one hundred and forty three households (making it rather big for the period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was ruled by a pair of 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 (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is actually even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign plus a tablet in the church recall the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she died three years later, however she left behind a son, Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there would be a hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early days the business has expanded enormously, and fresh new varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays sold all around the globe.

The village can be reached via the the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles from Hunstanton, 22km (fourteen miles) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
