A village and popular holiday destination beside some great beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 4,707 occupants and is probably best known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also known for its lavender fields, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become popular as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, with the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties replacing an older wooden bridge. The area is still favoured nowadays as a holiday resort, with both North and South Beach being dotted with camping and caravan sites.

The beaches at this point are placed on the eastern shores of The Wash, which means it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It's in all likelihood around 5 millenia since the earliest settlements materialized in the area close to Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this fact. Settlement remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was more than likely not till the fifth century that the first actual village was founded there. The name of the village is supposed to be derived from the title of a local Norman Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence of this. An extra theory is that the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then had 143 households (quite substantial for this times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighbourhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still older than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church recount the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, but she provided John with a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and related products. 4 years later there would be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since then the venture has evolved appreciably, and unique types have been reared. The lavender is nowadays exported all throughout the world.
