A seaside village and well known holiday resort with some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around 5,000 occupants and is probably most recognized for its ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is additionally well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be popular as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, due to the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace the ancient timber bridge. Heacham is still popular these days as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beaches dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines in this area are found upon the easterly coast of The Wash, this means it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is most likely more than 5 millenia since the 1st human settlements took place in the region near Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was possibly not until the fifth century when the first proper village was established there. The name is considered to be taken from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any solid evidence of this. Yet another idea it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book (1086) to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time consisted of one hundred and forty three households (pretty large for the time) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighbourhood was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even older, dating from roughly 1100, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet within the church remind visitors of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, but she produced a son, Tom, he later on went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the business has expanded greatly, and different types have been bred. Lavender is nowadays sold all around the world.
