St Mary's church organ was built in 1914 by T R Spurdon Rutt & Co of London for the East Finchley Congregational Church.
It arrived in Heacham in 1970 with assistance from local organ builders, A J Shaw & Sons. It now has 3 manuals with electro-pneumatic action.
An extension was added to the north elevation of the church in the early 1990s, providing a small meeting room, a kitchen area and toilets with disabled access.
Coats of arms of prominent members of the Rolfe family are located inside St Mary's Church, Heacham.
They were made from oak from the Heacham Hall estate.
The Strachan memorial is located in the south west corner of the chancel. Panels of wood carving on the pulpit were provided by Ada Rolfe in memory of her husband.
St Mary's 2009 Flower Festival achieved high acclaim when it focussed on using only recycled items to make flower arrangements. The Church hopes to repeat the concept in the future.
If you are visiting Heacham when the Festival is on you should not miss it.
Churches designed like St Mary the Virgin of Heacham, with a central tower built on the crossing, are a rarity in Norfolk as buildings designed in this manner required a strong foundation base using good strong building stone.
One such memorial is an unknown knight in armour made of London brass (1485).
The figure stands 27 inches and, unlike many Norwich made brasses, is not deeply etched.
A sculpture of Pocahontas in Jacobean dress by Otillea Wallace, a pupil of Rodin hangs on the wall above a plaque dedicated to John Rolfe’s father.
Pocahontas also features on the Heacham village sign.
In the photograph (middle right) you can see how transepts rising to a great height were designed to support the tower, but these transepts were not well maintained over the years resulting in the extraordinary buttress on the north side being built to support the tower circa 1800.
