A village and well known holiday resort boasting some awesome beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a population of around 4,707 people and is possibly most widely known for its ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The area is also known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be fashionable as a beach resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, as a consequence of opening of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in the 1880's to take the place of the older timber bridge. The village still is well loved nowadays as a coastal resort, with both the North and South Beach being replete with caravan sites.

The beach areas at this point are found upon the easterly shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It is certainly more than five thousand yrs since the 1st settlers showed up in the area surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, while it was very likely not till the 5th century when the 1st true village was founded there. The name is possibly taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any solid evidence that this is the truth. An additional theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage contained 143 households (making it rather substantial for the times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighborhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even earlier, dating from around 1100, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, though she gave birth to a son called Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. 4 years later there were one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the company has evolved dramatically, and newer types have been raised. The lavender is nowadays sold all around the globe.

The village can be reached via the the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately 3 miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
