A village and well loved holiday resort having some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most widely known for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is additionally widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become fashionable as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, mainly because of the opening of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties taking the place of an old wooden bridge. The area is still popular these days as a beach resort, with both South Beach and North Beach dotted with caravan and camping parks.

The beaches in this area are placed upon the eastern shores of The Wash, therefore it is one of the only beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's History: It's in all probability roughly 5 millenia since the initial settlements manifested in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, however it was in all probability not until the 5th century when the 1st real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is the truth. A different theory it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then supported one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly big for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was overseen by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even older, dating from around 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet within the church outline the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she died three years later, though she left a son called Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there would be one hundred acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the venture has grown substantially, and newer varieties have been bred. The lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.
