A coastal village and popular holiday resort having some awesome beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of around 4,707 inhabitants and is probably most recognized for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become fashionable as a tourist resort in the 19th century, due to the opening of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of an olden timber bridge. Heacham remains well loved nowadays as a coastal resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being dotted with camping and caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, this means it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's History: It is probably approximately 5 millenia since the initial human settlers showed up in the area close to Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement continued there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was almost certainly not till the fifth century when the 1st genuine village was founded there. The name of the village is perhaps taken from the name of a Lord in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any reliable evidence of this. An additional theory is that the name was taken from the local River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time comprised one hundred and forty three households (fairly large for the period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighborhood was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient surviving structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is actually still older, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet within the church recount the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, but she left behind a son, Tom, who later on went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the objective of producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the venture has grown dramatically, and fresh types have been bred. Lavender is currently exported all around the globe.
