A village and well loved vacation destination with some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about 5,000 people and is perhaps best known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is additionally widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become fashionable as a sea side resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, mainly because of the arrival of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace the obsolete wooden bridge. The area is still popular nowadays as a holiday resort, with both South and North Beach replete with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas here are found on the easterly banks of The Wash, consequently it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is more than likely roughly 5,000 years since the 1st human settlers arrived in the region surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of this. Human settlement continued there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, while it was most probably not until the 5th century that the earliest genuine village was founded there. The name is said to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any reliable evidence of this. Another explanation is, the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Recognized in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days included one hundred and forty three households (rather big for the time) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 the region was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest surviving structure in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign along with a tablet in the church recall the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died 3 years later, but she provided John with 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 set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be over 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the company has grown dramatically, and unique types have been produced. Lavender is nowadays exported all over the world.

The village can be reached by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is around three miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles from Kings Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
