A seaside village and popular vacation destination alongside some superb beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 5,000 inhabitants and is perhaps most widely known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The village is additionally well regarded for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become known as a tourist resort in the mid-19th century, due to the arrival of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the out-of-date wooden bridge. Heacham continues to be well loved nowadays as a coastal resort, with both South Beach and North Beach replete with camping and caravan sites.

The seashores here are placed on the east shores of The Wash, this means it's one of the only beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's possibly more than five millenia since the earliest settlements manifested in the region around Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was perhaps not until the 5th century that the 1st genuine village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is supposed to be taken from the name of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any solid evidence of this. A second thought is, the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days had one hundred and forty three households (making it quite big for the period) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest remaining structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than this, dating from around 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church recall the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, however she left behind a son called Tom, he later on returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated products. 4 years later there would be one hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early years the company has expanded considerably, and brand new types have been nurtured. The lavender is currently exported all around the world.
