A coastal village and well loved holiday destination featuring some fantastic beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around 4,700 people and is probably most commonly known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be known as a coastal resort in the 19th century, with the opening of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the old wooden bridge. The area still is favoured today as a holiday resort, with both South and North Beaches being peppered with caravan parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed on the east banks of The Wash, therefore it's one of the few beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's probably around five millenia since the earliest human settlers arrived in the vicinity close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was perhaps not till the 5th century that the 1st real village was set up there. The name of the village is believed to be derived from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence that this is true. A further possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the 1086 Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then supported one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly big for this times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign plus a tablet in the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, though she left behind a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the objective of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the venture has grown dramatically, and different types have been propagated. Lavender is nowadays sold all throughout the world.

The village can be entered from the the A149 or the B1454, it is around 3 miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
