A village and well loved holiday destination offering some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly 5,000 people and is perhaps best known for its historic links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also known for its lavender fields, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be known as a sea side resort in the 19th century, because of the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 replacing an ancient wood bridge. The area remains popular today as a beach resort, with both South Beach and North Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are placed upon the east coast of The Wash, this means it's one of few beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's certainly roughly 5,000 yrs since the 1st human settlers colonized in the region around Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of that. Settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century when the 1st actual village was established there. The name of the village is reported to be derived from the title of a local Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence that this is true. An extra explanation is that the name comes from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage was made up of 143 households (fairly large for this times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the neighborhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth even older, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign as well as a tablet within the church outline the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nevertheless she produced a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and related products. 4 years later there would be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the business has evolved greatly, and brand new varieties have been bred. The lavender is these days sold all around the world.

The village can be reached by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately three miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22km) from Kings Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
