Templeton is a village in the county of Pembrokeshire, South Wales. It stands on the crossroads of the A4115 and the A478 between the popular resorts of Narberth and Tenby. Templeton retains a pub, the Boars Head, and a Primary School, as well as a church, St Johns, and a park.
Some believe the village derives its name from a possible connection to a religious house connected to the Knights Templar located in Templeton in medieval times.
Close to the village lies a circular mound or ringworks, known as Sentence Castle, it stands approximately 15ft high with a scooped hollow on the top of the mound and is thought to date from the 12th century. Local legend has it that it was the court of the Knights Templars.
A stream runs along the eastern side of the mound and there are two wells close by known locally as St Margaret's Well and Sammaries Well. Margaret's Well, one of the 'Holy Wells of Wales', is set into a bank and the well chamber is lined with stone and has a corbelled roof.
A popular village folktale speaks of the Wildebeest, a nocturnal monster, which has led to the launching in 2010 of the wildebeest ale by Templeton Beer, Wines and Spirits, the local drinks distribution company.
