St Mary's Church has been a centrepoint of Heworth since around AD 684, with the current church building dating from 1822.

In the Graveyard at Heworth can be found The Haddon Tomb, also known as "The Babes in the Bed" an unusual memorial in the shape of a four poster bed. To three of the Haddon children William, George and their sister, whose name is now illegible. Local legend has it that the three children died in a fire when a candle fell onto their bed while they were sleeping. This is unlikely to have been the case as their deaths span a six years period between 1711 and 1717. It was built by their father, Joseph Haddon, a master mason, who died in 1721 aged 42 years.
