A village and well known vacation resort adjacent to some awesome beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly five thousand people and is perhaps most recognized for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The area is additionally well regarded for its lavender fields, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, simply because of the coming of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties in order to replace the older timber bridge. Heacham is just as well loved today as a tourist resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being lined with caravan sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are set on the eastern shores of The Wash, meaning it's one of very few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's quite possibly approximately five thousand yrs since the first human settlements occurred in the region near Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was quite likely not till the fifth century that the earliest true village was established there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any strong evidence that this is true. The other explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage was made up of one hundred and forty three households (fairly big for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not still older, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she produced a son, Tom, who subsequently went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. Four years later there would be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the business has evolved substantially, and new types have been bred. Lavender is these days exported all around the globe.
