A village and well loved holiday resort offering some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately four thousand seven hundred people and is probably best known for its historic links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. The village is additionally reputed for its lavender fields, grown by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be fashionable as a holiday resort in the mid-19th century, a result of the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace an oudated wood bridge. Heacham is still well loved nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being lined with camping and caravan sites.

The beach areas in this area are found on the east banks of The Wash, which means it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

The History of Heacham: It is quite likely more than five thousand yrs since the initial human settlers turned up in the region surrounding Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was possibly not until the fifth century when the 1st real village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the name of a Norman Lord in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any reliable evidence of this. One additional explanation is, the name comes from the local River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times was made up of 143 households (pretty sizeable for this times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet in the church record the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died 3 years later, but she provided John with a son named Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be over a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the company has grown dramatically, and unique varieties have been produced. Lavender is these days sold all around the world.
