A coastal village and well known vacation resort having some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of roughly 5,000 occupants and is probably most recognized for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become fashionable as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, as a consequence of building of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 taking the place of an olden timber bridge. The area is just as well loved these days as a beach resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being replete with camping and caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are situated on the easterly shores of The Wash, consequently it's one of only a handful of beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

The Story of Heacham: It is undoubtedly over 5 millenia since the earliest settlements took place in the area near Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that. Habitation persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, while it was quite likely not till the 5th century that the 1st actual village was established there. The name of the village is considered to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any solid evidence that this is true. Still another explanation it was named after the local River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then incorporated 143 households (making it fairly large for this time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighbourhood was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even earlier, dating from about 1100, one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign plus a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son named Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early days the business has evolved considerably, and different types have been propagated. The lavender is now sold all throughout the world.
