A coastal village and well known vacation destination having some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is possibly most recognized for its historic links with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is additionally widely known for its lavender fields, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be well liked as a seaside resort in the time of the Victorians, soon after the establishing of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 replacing an older wooden bridge. The area remains popular nowadays as a coastal resort, with both North and South Beaches being peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The shorelines here are placed upon the easterly coast of The Wash, therefore it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is most probably around five millenia since the earliest human settlers emerged in the region close to Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, however it was most probably not until the fifth century when the earliest true village was established there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no compelling evidence of this. An additional thought is, the name was taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the 1086 Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then supported one hundred and forty three households (making it rather sizeable for the times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient remaining building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still older than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church recount the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died 3 years later, though she left a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being created between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the company has grown enormously, and fresh new types have been created. Lavender is currently sold all over the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is about three miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from Kings Lynn, forty three miles from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
