♔Widecombe- Dartmoor- Devon England

Widecombe-in-the-Moor is located within the heart of the Dartmoor National Park in Devon.

The village of Widecombe lies within the beautiful valley of the East Webburn river and its name is thought to derive from ‘Withy-combe’ which means Willow Valley.

The village is a well-known – all-year-round tourist spot, and is world-famous for its annual fair held on the second Tuesday in September, which gave rise to the well-known folk song ‘Widecombe Fair’ and the characters of Uncle Tom Cobley and All.
