A village and well loved vacation resort beside some superb beaches, Heacham is positioned in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 4,700 inhabitants and is probably most widely known for its historic ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is additionally widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a beach resort in the 19th century, a result of the building of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties replacing an olden wooden bridge. Heacham still is favoured these days as a tourist resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach lined with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores at Heacham are located on the easterly shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is undoubtedly more than five thousand yrs since the earliest human settlements took place in the region close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this. Habitation continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, even though it was quite possibly not till the 5th century when the earliest actual village was founded there. The name is quite possibly derived from the name of a Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence that this is the truth. A second theory is that the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book (1086) to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage consisted of 143 households (pretty large for this period) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she left behind a son, Tom, he later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early days the business has evolved considerably, and brand new varieties have been raised. The lavender is these days sold all around the world.
