St Mary's Church, Begelly, stands in Pembrokeshire, West Wales.

The 13th Century church is one of Pembrokeshire’s hidden gems, yet with Pembrokeshire's tallest church tower
– it’s not that well hidden!

The church is a Grade 2 listed building and is a focal point of the community greeting hundreds of thousands of tourists
at the gateway to Pembrokeshire every year.

St Mary's Church was originally dedicated to St Bugail, which in Welsh means "Shepherd" and
this may have been the origin of the name.

The crenellated tower provides a striking landmark and at 71 feet high, with 3 storeys, houses a bell made in 1760 by Bayley in Bridgewater and
is the tallest tower in the county.

The bell bears the inscription "My sound is good, my shape is neat. 'Twas Bayley made me so complete" 1760.

Amongst the features of the church are the medieval font, a holy water stoup and the chancel arch “apparently Norman – built of local stone”.
