A coastal village and popular vacation destination with some exceptional beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 5,000 people and is probably most famous for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get known as a beach resort in the mid-19th century, mainly because of the arrival of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's to replace an ancient wood bridge. Heacham remains well-liked today as a holiday resort, with both North and South Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are found upon the eastern shores of The Wash, meaning it is one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The History of Heacham: It is most probably over five millenia since the 1st settlers showed up in the area surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement persisted in the area all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was perhaps not till the 5th century that the first true village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the name of a Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence of this. Yet another theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment in time was made up of 143 households (rather substantial for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 this area was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then governed by Cluniac Monks, right up 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 building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even older than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church recount the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, however she provided John with a son, Tom, who later on returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the aim of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since then the enterprise has expanded greatly, and new types have been produced. Lavender is now sold all around the globe.

The village can be go to via the the A149 and the B1454, it is about 5km (three miles) from Hunstanton, 22km (fourteen miles) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles (69km) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
