The Widecombe-in-the-Moor Website
Widecombe History Group Home Page
Registered Charity Number 1144684
We meet on the first Wednesday of every month in the Church House, Widecombe, and everyone is welcome. We have guest speakers and go on guided walks and visits arranged to suit the interests of the members, usually with a local or Dartmoor flavour.
This site is intended as a reference for members and for all those who cannot attend our meetings but are interested in the history of Widecombe, whether as a visitor to Dartmoor or perhaps with family connections here.
The Group is very active with some fascinating projects on the go and a full programme of events. The projects are always in need of more information, so if you have any snippets of information, photos or other material, however small, please let us know.
Please enjoy the site and tell us what you think. You can use the menu on the left to navigate through all of the History Group pages.
