A coastal village and well loved vacation resort boasting some superb beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately four thousand seven hundred people and is probably most commonly known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The area is also well known for its fields of lavender, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become fashionable as a seaside resort in Victorian times, because of the coming of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven replacing the olden wooden bridge. Heacham remains popular these days as a beach resort, with both the South and North Beaches dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches at this point are located upon the east coast of The Wash, this means it's one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's almost certainly around five millenia since the first settlements occurred in the region surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of that. Human settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was quite likely not until the 5th century when the 1st true village was founded there. The name of the village is believed to be derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any firm evidence that this is a fact. One additional possibility it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time consisted of 143 households (making it quite big for this time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the region was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining building in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in fact still earlier, dating from roughly 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, but she gave birth to a son, Tom, he later returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of growing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be over 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the business has expanded greatly, and newer varieties have been created. Lavender is currently exported all around the world.
