A village and well known vacation resort having some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of roughly 5,000 people and is probably most commonly known for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, farmed by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become known as a beach resort in the mid-19th century, as a consequence of building of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 to take the place of an olden timber bridge. The village continues to be favoured these days as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores at Heacham are situated upon the east shoreline of The Wash, which means it is one of the only beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's probably approximately 5,000 years since the earliest settlers colonized in the region close to Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was most probably not until the fifth century when the 1st genuine village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is said to be derived from the name of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no reliable evidence that this is true. Yet another possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time was made up of 143 households (making it quite large for the times) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the region was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even older than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she produced a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early times the company has expanded enormously, and new varieties have been reared. The lavender is nowadays exported all over the world.

The village can be reached from the the A149 or the B1454, it is roughly 5km (three miles) from Hunstanton, 22km (14 miles) from Kings Lynn, 69km (43 miles) from Norwich and about 118 miles (190km) from London.
