A village and well known holiday resort having some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of roughly five thousand people and is perhaps most commonly known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated in Heacham. The area is furthermore known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become fashionable as a seaside resort in the nineteenth century, due to the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 taking the place of an older timber bridge. The area still is well-liked these days as a beach resort, with both North Beach and South Beach dotted with caravan and camping parks.

The shorelines at this point are positioned upon the easterly coast of The Wash, consequently it's one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is in all probability approximately 5,000 years since the earliest human settlements appeared in the region close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of that. Human settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was very likely not till the fifth century that the earliest proper village was founded there. The name of the village is said to be derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no strong evidence that this is the truth. An extra thought is, the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time contained one hundred and forty three households (pretty substantial for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighborhood was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still older, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church remind visitors of the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, but she provided John with a son called Tom, he later on went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being created between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the intention of producing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there were 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since those early days the company has expanded substantially, and new varieties have been propagated. Lavender is these days sold all around the globe.

The village can be go to via the the A149 and the B1454, it is roughly three miles from Hunstanton, 14 miles (22km) from King's Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
