St Mary Out Liberty (also known as Tenby St Mary Out Liberty[1]) is a parish in the south-east of Pembrokeshire. It is included, with St Mary In Liberty, in the ecclesiastical parish of Tenby.


The name Out Liberty refers to the fact that this part of the parish was outside the borough of Tenby. The name dates as least as far back as the 1834 Poor Law, when the area was responsible for its own poor. In 1881 the majority of males in the parish were occupied in agriculture.[2] In 1932 part of the area was transferred to St Mary In Liberty.[1]

Apart from the parish church, the community contains three listed buildings: Knightston Farmhouse, the attached malthouse and bakery, and a cart shed. The farm is early 19th century.[3]

The parish is bordered by East Williamston, Saundersfoot, Tenby and St Florence.[4] Part of the community is in the town of Tenby itself.

St Mary's Church

The church, after which the parish is named, dates at least to the 13th century and is the parish church of Tenby. The present building is Grade I listed.[5]
