A seaside village and well known holiday resort offering some superb beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately 4,707 inhabitants and is perhaps most widely known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is additionally reputed for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become well liked as a sea side resort in Victorian times, with the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 to replace an older wood bridge. The area continues to be well loved today as a coastal resort, with both the North and South Beaches being peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores at this point are situated upon the east shoreline of The Wash, this means that it is one of the few beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea as opposed to over the land.

A History of Heacham: It's more than likely over 5,000 yrs since the first human settlements took place in the area surrounding Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation continued there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, even though it was very likely not until the 5th century when the 1st real village was set up there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the name of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any strong evidence that this is a fact. Another idea is that the name comes from the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during that time was made up of 143 households (making it fairly big for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she produced a son named Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. 4 years later there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early times the business has grown significantly, and different types have been nurtured. Lavender is these days exported all over the world.
