A village and well known vacation destination having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly 5,000 occupants and is probably most famous for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. The village is additionally 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 - 310386Heacham started to get fashionable as a beach resort in the time of the Victorians, after the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's to take the place of the dated wood bridge. The area is just as popular these days as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beaches peppered with caravan sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are located on the eastern banks of The Wash, meaning it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It's very likely roughly five thousand yrs since the earliest human settlements occurred in the area near Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was probably not till the fifth century that the first real village was founded there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any solid evidence of this. The other theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty substantial for the times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest remaining structure in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is actually even earlier, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, but she provided John with a son named Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there were 100 acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the company has expanded significantly, and new types have been raised. The lavender is currently exported all over the world.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22km) from King's Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
