A seaside village and popular vacation destination alongside some superb beaches, Heacham is positioned in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of roughly five thousand inhabitants and is possibly most widely known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is also reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be known as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, a result of the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's in order to replace the aged timber bridge. The area is still popular these days as a beach resort, with both North and South Beach lined with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines here are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, this means it's one of only a handful of beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is almost certainly over five millenia since the first settlers turned up in the region near Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of this. Habitation remained there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, though it was most likely not until the 5th century when the 1st proper village was set up there. The name of the village is perhaps derived from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no strong evidence that this is the truth. The other explanation it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time had one hundred and forty three households (making it quite sizeable for the times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest surviving structure in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is in truth even older, dating from about eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church recall the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she produced a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the aim of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there were 100 acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the business has expanded dramatically, and new types have been created. Lavender is now exported all throughout the world.

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