St Mary Magdalene's Church in Bleddfa / Eglwys y Santes Fair Fadlen ym Mleddfa
The interior of the church is divided by a wooden partition east of the south door entrance, as the western portion was formerly used as a schoolroom. It now houses a photographic exhibition of the village's history. The remaining worship space was rearranged with movable furnishings in 1977 by the noted church architect George Pace, to make it easily adaptable for various purposes.

Old photographs show the church fitted out with box pews, which were removed in the restoration by E.V. Collier in 1907. The sheeting covering most of the modern chairs is there to protect them from the bats which roost in the building.

The altar rails, with their spiral balusters, date from the late 17th century and the pulpit has some Jacobean arcading, from before 1625.

For details of the 15th-century roof see SO2068 : Roof of St Mary Magdalene's Church.
