A seaside village and popular vacation resort offering some outstanding beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of roughly 4,700 people and is perhaps best known for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is additionally known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be well liked as a coastal resort in the nineteenth century, mainly because of the coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 taking the place of the ancient timber bridge. The village is just as well loved today as a holiday resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan and camping parks.

The beaches at this point are situated upon the east shores of The Wash, consequently it is one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is certainly more than 5 millenia since the initial human settlers colonized in the area surrounding Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of that. Settlement remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, even though it was possibly not until the fifth century that the 1st actual village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is said to be derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any solid evidence that this is true. A different possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book (1086) to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time had 143 households (making it rather substantial for this period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest this area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then controlled 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 eldest existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even older than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign plus a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she died three years later, but she produced a son named Tom, who eventually returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there would be over 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the company has grown dramatically, and new varieties have been raised. The lavender is now sold all over the world.
