A seaside village and well known holiday destination alongside some great beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about 4,700 people and is perhaps most famous for its links with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also widely known for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be fashionable as a coastal resort in the 19th century, because of the opening of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 replacing an olden timber bridge. The village remains favoured these days as a seaside resort, with both South Beach and North Beach dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores at this point are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, consequently it is one of only a handful of beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

The History of Heacham: It's more than likely roughly five millenia since the earliest human settlers arrived in the region surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Settlement persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was quite likely not till the fifth century when the first proper village was founded there. The name of the village is said to be derived from the name of a Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence that this is true. An additional thought it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time supported 143 households (making it pretty substantial for the time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even older, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign along with a tablet within the church outline the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she left behind a son named Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the business has evolved substantially, and fresh types have been bred. The lavender is these days sold all around the world.

The village can be reached via the the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 3 miles (5 kilometres) from Hunstanton, fourteen miles from King's Lynn, 43 miles (69 kilometres) from Norwich and about 118 miles from London.
