The Widecombe-in-the-Moor Website
Widecombe-in-the-Moor Home Page
The Widecombe-in-the-Moor website promotes all aspects of Widecombe and Dartmoor life, past, present and future, for the use of local people, visitors, and all who are interested. Please enjoy exploring the site.
We have introduced a new menu on the left. It should be easier to use especially for tablet users as it requires a click (or touch) rather than a hover! It has now been extended to the History Group and Parish Council menus. If you encounter any problems, please let us know. The old menu is available with a single click under 'Show Old Menu'.
If you have trouble travelling to Widecombe by public transport, a new website may help you out. Give www.journeydevon.info a try. In fact it will help you with your travel throughout Devon.
Is Widecombe a ghost town? Daniel Stern and, by now, many in the USA certainly think so. We, of course, know better.
Please Visit the History Group Publications Page to consider buying their publications, including their recent book 'History of Widecombe Fair'. This book is also available from some local shops.
