Gelli is a small settlement in the community and parish[1][2] of Llawhaden, Pembrokeshire, Wales, at the confluence of the Syfynwy and Cleddau Ddu rivers. It is 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Narberth and 8 miles (13 km) east of Haverfordwest. The nearest railway station is at Clunderwen 2 miles (3 km) to the east. There was a woollen mill in Gelli that ceased production in 1938.[3]


Gelli Bridge, immediately to the east of Gelli, spans the Syfynwy a few yards before it joins the Eastern Cleddau and is Grade II listed; it is listed twice (with different IDs and dates) because it falls within two parishes.[4][5] This listed bridge is not to be confused with several other bridges in the vicinity which carry road and rail across the Eastern Cleddau and another tributary.[6]


Siloam Welsh Baptist Church[7] is in the centre of the hamlet. It was built in 1858 and rebuilt in 1904.[8]
