A village and well known vacation destination featuring some terrific beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 4,700 inhabitants and is possibly most famous for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also well regarded for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a holiday resort in Victorian times, simply because of the establishing of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 replacing an redundant wooden bridge. The area still is favoured today as a coastal resort, with both South and North Beach being dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are found upon the eastern shores of The Wash, which means it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is more than likely more than 5,000 years since the initial human settlers emerged in the vicinity around Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was most likely not till the fifth century when the first true village was established there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence that this is the truth. Yet another theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then had one hundred and forty three households (making it rather big for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining structure in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from approximately 1100, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet within the church recount the famous ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, but she produced a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since then the enterprise has expanded enormously, and unique types have been bred. The lavender is nowadays exported all throughout the world.
