A seaside village and popular vacation resort offering some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of about five thousand occupants and is probably best known for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The area is furthermore reputed for its lavender fields, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get known as a sea side resort in the time of the Victorians, simply because of the establishing of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties taking the place of an ancient wooden bridge. The village is just as favoured today as a tourist resort, with both the North and South Beaches being dotted with caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are placed upon the easterly shores of The Wash, consequently it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is most likely around 5 millenia since the 1st human settlements materialized in the region close to Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was perhaps not till the 5th century that the first real village was set up there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the title of a Norman Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence that this is the truth. A further possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book (1086) to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it quite large for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest the neighborhood was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The oldest existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died three years later, nevertheless she left behind a son, Tom, who later returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. Four years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the business has grown substantially, and different types have been propagated. The lavender is today sold all over the world.

The village can be reached from the the A149 and the B1454, it is approximately three miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22km) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 190km (118 miles) from London.
