A seaside village and well loved holiday destination adjacent to some wonderful beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a population of around 4,700 people and is probably most famous for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated in Heacham. The village is also widely known for its fields of lavender, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be popular as a coastal resort in the time of the Victorians, simply because of the arrival of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's taking the place of the obsolete timber bridge. The area is just as well loved today as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines here are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, this means that it is one of few beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

The History of Heacham: It is more than likely roughly five millenia since the earliest human settlements occurred in the vicinity around Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation remained there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, while it was most probably not till the 5th century that the first real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps taken from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any solid evidence that this is a fact. An extra thought is, the name comes from the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time had 143 households (making it fairly sizeable for the period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest Heacham was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient existing structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even older, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet within the church tell of the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she provided John with a son, Tom, who later returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there were one hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early beginnings the business has grown greatly, and fresh varieties have been produced. The lavender is currently sold all throughout the world.
