St Mary's Church, Pennard, is a late 13th century church established when an earlier church became overwhelmed by sand. An ancient water stoup serves as a font, with a carved Jacobean cover, and the pulpit is also Jacobean. Laudian dog-rails protect the sanctuary and the beam supporting the gallery may have been the medieval rood-beam. Painted features include a decalogue board with Royal Arms (re-set) above texts on boards. The date is unknown, but is probably eightenth cxentury.
