A village and well loved vacation destination having some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,707 inhabitants and is probably most widely known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is also widely known for its lavender fields, cultivated here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be well liked as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, due to the arrival of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties taking the place of an outmoded wood bridge. The village continues to be popular these days as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beach being replete with caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are set on the easterly shores of The Wash, which means it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It's quite likely more than five millenia since the 1st settlements appeared in the vicinity near Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, whilst it was more than likely not until the 5th century that the first real village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence of this. Still another theory is, the name was taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then had 143 households (making it rather sizeable for this time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was controlled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she left a son called Tom, he subsequently went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. Four years later there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the enterprise has expanded appreciably, and fresh new varieties have been propagated. The lavender is now sold all over the world.
