Hevingham Saint Mary the Virgin and Saint Botolph Church, was mainly built in the 1300s but parts of the church may date back to the Norman Period. Situated one mile north of the village centre, the church is dedicated to St Botolph; an English 7th century saint of travellers and farmers. The old rectory built in 1788 for the Reverend J. Alderson, is now a care home.

The village is documented in the Domesday Book where it is recorded as Heuincham "where one freeman, a priest, is recorded as holding 40 acres in alms for the King". The village of Rippon or Ripton is noted within Hevingham but this village was deserted during the medieval period. Its exact location is unknown.
