The Church of Saint Mary the Virgin is the parish church of Great Bedwyn, Wiltshire, England, and a Grade I listed building. The church was built in the Norman style in the 12th century, but beneath the existing building are Saxon remains dating back to the 10th century. The church boasts a handsome memorial to Sir John Seymour, father of King Henry VIII's wife Jane Seymour, and grandfather of King Edward VI of England.
The church has Anglo-Saxon origins. In A.D. 905, the bishop of Winchester purchased land in Great Bedwyn to build a church. Beneath the existing church are the substantial remains of a Saxon church.
