A village and well known vacation destination having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about five thousand occupants and is perhaps most famous for its links with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated in Heacham. The village is also well known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get popular as a seaside resort in Victorian times, with the establishing of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. This also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the ancient timber bridge. Heacham is just as favoured today as a coastal resort, with both North and South Beach being replete with caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed on the easterly shores of The Wash, this means that it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It is quite likely approximately 5 millenia since the 1st human settlements appeared in the area close to Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, whilst it was most likely not till the fifth century that the earliest actual village was established there. The name is said to be derived from the name of a Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no solid evidence that this is true. An additional explanation is, the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage included 143 households (pretty large for this time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier, dating from around 1100, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign along with a tablet in the church outline the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, still she left behind a son named Tom, who later went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres under cultivation. Since then the company has expanded significantly, and fresh types have been created. Lavender is these days exported all over the world.

The village can be go to by means of the A149 or the B1454, it is approximately 3 miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
