A village and well loved vacation resort having some fantastic beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly five thousand people and is perhaps most recognized for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. The area is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get known as a seaside resort in the 19th century, as a consequence of arrival of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 taking the place of the out-of-date wooden bridge. The village still is popular today as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beaches being lined with camping and caravan parks.

The beach areas here are set on the eastern shores of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of the only beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is perhaps over 5 millenia since the initial human settlers turned up in the vicinity near Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century when the earliest real village was set up there. The name of the village is said to be derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no solid evidence that this is a fact. A further idea is that the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly big for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the village was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient surviving building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier than this, dating from roughly 1100, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died three years later, but she produced a son called Tom, he later went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early days the enterprise has evolved appreciably, and new varieties have been raised. The lavender is today sold all around the world.

The village can be reached by means of the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22 kilometres) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
