A coastal village and well loved holiday destination with some excellent beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around 4,707 people and is probably most widely known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The area is also known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get known as a coastal resort in the nineteenth century, after the opening of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven to take the place of an old timber bridge. The area remains favoured these days as a tourist resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being peppered with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas in this area are located on the east shoreline of The Wash, this means that it is one of the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The History of Heacham: It's quite likely around 5 millenia since the initial settlers arrived in the region near Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this. Habitation persisted there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, however it was quite possibly not till the fifth century when the earliest proper village was established there. The name is said to be derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any solid evidence that this is true. A further theory is that the name is derived from the nearby River Hitch.

Recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time incorporated 143 households (making it pretty sizeable for the time) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 Heacham was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient existing structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even older, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign plus a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died three years later, however she produced a son named Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since then the company has expanded enormously, and unique types have been nurtured. Lavender is today exported all throughout the world.
