A village and well loved vacation resort boasting some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about five thousand occupants and is probably most widely known for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a beach resort in the 19th century, with the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of the outdated timber bridge. The area is still favoured nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the South and North Beach dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The seashores here are set on the east shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It is most certainly approximately five thousand yrs since the earliest settlements appeared in the area surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of this. Human settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was in all probability not till the 5th century that the earliest real village was established there. The name is reported to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any firm evidence that this is the truth. An extra possibility is that the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage consisted of one hundred and forty three households (quite big for this times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even older, dating from around 1100, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign together with a tablet within the church outline the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she died three years later, still she gave birth to a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and distilling of lavender and related products. Four years later there was destined to be 100 acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the company has grown dramatically, and fresh new varieties have been bred. Lavender is currently exported all around the globe.

The village can be accessed by means of the A149 or the B1454, it is about three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (fourteen miles) from Kings Lynn, 43 miles from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
