A coastal village and popular holiday resort alongside some fine beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around five thousand occupants and is probably most commonly known for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is additionally widely known for its lavender fields, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get fashionable as a beach resort in the time of the Victorians, following the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the dated timber bridge. The area still is well loved today as a seaside resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The beaches at Heacham are placed upon the east shores of The Wash, which means it is one of the only beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's History: It's perhaps over 5,000 yrs since the first human settlers colonized in the vicinity near Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was most probably not until the 5th century that the first proper village was set up there. The name is considered to be derived from the title of a Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any firm evidence that this is true. Still another thought is, the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment included 143 households (fairly substantial for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the village was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth still earlier, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet in the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died 3 years later, though she produced a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related products. A few years later there were 100 acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has evolved substantially, and brand new types have been propagated. The lavender is now exported all around the globe.

The village can be go to by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately 5km (3 miles) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
