A village and popular holiday resort with some great beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 4,700 occupants and is perhaps best known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, farmed by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be well liked as a sea side resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, mainly because of the arrival of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 replacing an old timber bridge. The village is still well loved today as a holiday resort, with both North and South Beaches replete with camping and caravan sites.

The beach areas in this area are placed on the east shores of The Wash, this means it is one of very few beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's quite likely more than 5,000 years since the earliest settlements appeared in the region close to Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of this. Human settlement persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was probably not till the 5th century when the 1st real village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is possibly taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence that this is a fact. The other idea is that the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days consisted of one hundred and forty three households (rather substantial for the times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the St 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 earlier than this, dating from roughly 1100, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign along with a tablet in the church tell of the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she died 3 years later, nonetheless she produced a son named Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be over 100 acres being cultivated. Since then the company has expanded significantly, and fresh types have been nurtured. Lavender is currently sold all over the world.
