A seaside village and well loved holiday resort having some great beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of around five thousand occupants and is possibly best known for its links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also reputed for its fields of lavender, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get well liked as a coastal resort in the nineteenth century, a result of the coming of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's to take the place of the older wood bridge. Heacham is still well loved these days as a seaside resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The shorelines at this point are located on the eastern coast of The Wash, which means it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

History of Heacham: It is certainly roughly five thousand years since the first human settlers turned up in the vicinity around Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of that. Settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was possibly not until the fifth century when the first genuine village was established there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the name of a Lord in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence of this. An extra possibility it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage supported one hundred and forty three households (making it rather large for the times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was controlled by a pair of 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 became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign and also a tablet in the church record the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she died three years later, however she produced a son named Tom, who subsequently went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there were 100 acres under cultivation. Since then the enterprise has expanded significantly, and new types have been produced. Lavender is nowadays exported all around the world.
