A seaside village and well known vacation destination boasting some terrific beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of around 4,700 people and is probably most famous for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is additionally reputed for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get popular as a holiday resort in the 19th century, due to the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven to take the place of an older wood bridge. Heacham still is popular nowadays as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beaches being replete with camping and caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are set on the east shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It's likely around 5,000 years since the first settlers showed up in the region close to Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was quite possibly not until the fifth century when the first true village was set up there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any compelling evidence of this. Still another possibility is that the name was taken from the local River Hitch.

Noted in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham back then consisted of 143 households (making it fairly sizeable for the period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually still earlier than this, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church outline the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died 3 years later, still she provided John with a son, Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. 4 years later there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the business has evolved enormously, and brand new types have been nurtured. Lavender is currently exported all around the world.
