A village and popular vacation resort with some outstanding beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of approximately 5,000 people and is perhaps most recognized for its historic ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is also known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get well liked as a tourist resort in Victorian times, due to the opening of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 in order to replace the old wooden bridge. The village is just as popular today as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beaches lined with caravan sites.

The beaches at this point are positioned on the easterly shores of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is almost certainly roughly five thousand yrs since the first human settlements manifested in the region near Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was probably not till the 5th century that the first real village was founded there. The name of the village is reported to be derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any solid evidence that this is a fact. Another idea is, the name comes from the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during that time comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it rather large for this times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, but she left a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being created between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early times the venture has grown considerably, and unique types have been created. The lavender is these days exported all over the world.

The village can be accessed by way of the A149 and the B1454, it is about three miles (5km) from Hunstanton, 22 kilometres (14 miles) from Kings Lynn, 69 kilometres (43 miles) from Norwich and about 190 kilometres (118 miles) from London.
