A seaside village and popular holiday destination offering some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately five thousand inhabitants and is probably best known for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. The area is additionally well regarded for its lavender fields, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get known as a coastal resort in Victorian times, mainly because of the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 taking the place of an old timber bridge. The village is still favoured nowadays as a beach resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being peppered with caravan sites.

The seashores at Heacham are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, therefore it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It is very likely over 5,000 yrs since the 1st settlers showed up in the region close to Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was likely not until the 5th century that the earliest genuine village was established there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps taken from the name of a local Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is a fact. One additional explanation is that the name derives from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage comprised 143 households (rather big for this times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest existing building in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact still older, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign plus a tablet within the church outline the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she died three years later, still she produced a son called Tom, he later returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of producing and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there were one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early days the enterprise has expanded considerably, and brand new types have been bred. Lavender is currently sold all over the world.
