A coastal village and well loved vacation destination boasting some terrific beaches, Heacham can be found 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 approximately 5,000 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get fashionable as a beach resort in Victorian times, due to the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of an old timber bridge. Heacham remains well loved these days as a tourist resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being replete with caravan sites.

The beaches at this point are placed on the eastern banks of The Wash, this means that it is one of the only beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's certainly roughly five thousand yrs since the 1st human settlements appeared in the area surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of this. Settlement remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was possibly not until the 5th century when the earliest true village was founded there. The name is perhaps taken from the name of a local Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any compelling evidence that this is the truth. A second explanation is, the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days supported one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly sizeable for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The oldest remaining building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is in fact still earlier than this, dating from approximately 1100, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet inside the church outline the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she left a son called Tom, he later returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the venture has grown significantly, and newer types have been nurtured. The lavender is now sold all around the world.
