A village and popular vacation destination featuring some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most famous for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be known as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, due to the opening of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. That culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 taking the place of the older wooden bridge. The area is still popular nowadays as a seaside resort, with both North and South Beach lined with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines here are located upon the easterly shores of The Wash, therefore it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It's more than likely around five thousand years since the 1st human settlements appeared in the area close to Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of that. Settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was in all probability not until the fifth century when the first true village was established there. The name of the village is quite possibly taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any compelling evidence that this is a fact. One additional possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book (1086) to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it rather big for this times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even older, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet inside the church record the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, but she left a son named Tom, who later returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there would be one hundred acres under cultivation. Since then the venture has expanded greatly, and brand new varieties have been bred. Lavender is these days sold all over the world.
