$14.95

Widecombe is a small isolated vilage in Dartmoor, Devonshire. The fair which is still held in September draws tourists from throughout the world. They have not missed holding the fair since starting it in the early 19th century We have included an interesting story about this event on our Home Page and will include a copy of the song about "Uncle Tom Cobbley And All" with your purchase. These were real people from neighboring villages throughout the Moors who made the trek to the Faire every year. In fact, Uncle Tom Cobley’s stool on which he sat while attending the faire is on display in Widecombe. During our last visit to the village we saw school children using the church for indoor play during bad weather. The church is often referred to as "The Cathedral in The Moors".
