A village and popular vacation resort beside some awesome beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of approximately 5,000 people and is probably most commonly known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be fashionable as a beach resort in the time of the Victorians, after the opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of the old wooden bridge. Heacham is still well loved these days as a tourist resort, with both South and North Beaches dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The seashores at this point are found on the east coast of The Wash, consequently it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It's certainly more than five thousand years since the first settlements occurred in the region near Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was in all probability not till the fifth century when the first actual village was established there. The name of the village is said to be derived from the title of a Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any strong evidence of this. A second theory is, the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage consisted of one hundred and forty three households (fairly substantial for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the neighborhood was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving structure in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth still earlier than this, dating from around 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away three years later, however she gave birth to a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the objective of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there were one hundred acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the business has evolved substantially, and different varieties have been reared. Lavender is now exported all around the globe.

The village can be reached by way of the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (fourteen miles) from Kings Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190 kilometres) from London.
