A coastal village and popular vacation resort having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of about 5,000 occupants and is possibly most commonly known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore reputed for its fields of lavender, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get well liked as a holiday resort in the mid-19th century, because of the arrival of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 to take the place of the olden wooden bridge. The village is still well loved today as a holiday resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach replete with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines here are placed on the east shoreline of The Wash, this means that it's one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's probably around five millenia since the earliest human settlements manifested in the area close to Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this. Human settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was in all likelihood not until the fifth century that the first actual village was set up there. The name of the village is reported to be derived from the title of a Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any strong evidence that this is a fact. A second possibility is, the name comes from the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days included one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty substantial for this time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighborhood was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards controlled by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet within the church tell of the historic ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she provided John with a son named Tom, who later on returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the objective of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be over one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has grown appreciably, and different varieties have been propagated. Lavender is currently sold all around the globe.

Heacham can be accessed via the the A149 and the B1454, it is about three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
