Widecombe-in-the-Moor is located within the heart of the Dartmoor National Park. The village of Widecombe lies within the beautiful valley of the East Webburn river (stream!). Its name is thought to derive from 'Withy-combe' which means Willow Valley.
The parish population comprises approximately 196 households.
The village is world-famous for its fair which is held annually in September, and which gave rise to the well-known folk song “Widecombe Fair” and the characters of “Uncle Tom Cobley and All”
For such a small village it has a large and splendid church known locally as “the Cathedral of the Moor”
