A village and well known holiday destination beside some wonderful beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately 4,707 inhabitants and is probably most recognized for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is additionally widely known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, just after the coming of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to replace an ancient timber bridge. Heacham remains favoured nowadays as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being dotted with caravan parks.

The beaches at Heacham are found upon the eastern coast of The Wash, this means it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is likely over 5,000 yrs since the initial settlements manifested in the region near Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was perhaps not till the 5th century that the earliest real village was established there. The name of the village is supposed to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any firm evidence that this is a fact. An additional possibility it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Noted down in the 1086 Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage supported one hundred and forty three households (fairly sizeable for this period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the neighborhood was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still earlier than this, dating from around 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she left a son named Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and associated products. Four years later there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the enterprise has grown significantly, and fresh new varieties have been raised. The lavender is nowadays sold all throughout the world.
