A seaside village and well known vacation resort having some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of about four thousand seven hundred occupants and is possibly most widely known for its historic links with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be well liked as a sea side resort in Victorian times, because of the building of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of an old wood bridge. Heacham is just as favoured nowadays as a beach resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being lined with caravan sites.

The beach areas here are positioned upon the easterly coast of The Wash, meaning it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It's most certainly roughly 5,000 years since the 1st settlers turned up in the vicinity near Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century that the first proper village was founded there. The name is perhaps taken from the title of a Norman Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any firm evidence that this is the truth. One additional explanation is, the name comes from the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days had 143 households (making it quite big for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth even earlier than this, dating from roughly 1100, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church recall the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died three years later, though she left a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since then the company has evolved enormously, and newer types have been created. The lavender is these days sold all over the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is about 3 miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 14 miles from Kings Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
