A village and well known holiday destination having some superb beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most commonly known for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is also reputed for its lavender fields, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a seaside resort in the nineteenth century, as a consequence of building of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the 1860s. This also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of the ancient wood bridge. The area still is favoured these days as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach lined with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are placed upon the east banks of The Wash, meaning it's one of the only beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is perhaps roughly 5,000 yrs since the first settlers arrived in the region surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was quite possibly not until the 5th century that the first genuine village was founded there. The name is perhaps derived from the title of a Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no solid evidence that this is the truth. Still another thought it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage consisted of 143 households (making it fairly large for the times) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining building in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is in truth still earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately 1100, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, but she left a son, Tom, he subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. A few years later there were one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since then the business has evolved significantly, and brand new varieties have been propagated. The lavender is these days sold all over the world.

The village can be entered by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is around 3 miles from Hunstanton, fourteen miles (22 kilometres) from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
