This building dates from 1451, when it was a church house that was used as almshouses. It was refurbished in 1637 when it was converted into eight single room dwellings. Subsequently the building became a workhouse in the 18th century and was then converted back into dwellings in the 19th century. Built from Dartmoor granite, these alms houses are at the edge of Moretonhampstead, the gateway to the High Moor. It is owned by the National Trust, but rented out to local residents.

The water from a stream has washed away the soil from this small tree's roots, leaving it to topple over on the south-west side of Dartmoor, near Yelverton.

Taken from the Princeton to Yelverton road on Dartmoor, and looking north-west. The village of Walkhampton is in the centre of the picture while the River Walkham lies in the valley. The river joins the River Tavy and then enters the sea at Plymouth.

Well known from the traditional folk song about Uncle Tom Cobleigh going to Widecombe Fair, Widecombe-in-the-Moor lies on the south side of Dartmoor. The fair itself is still held every September.

Widecombe-in-the-Moor is on the south side of Dartmoor, in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park. The village is probably best known for Widecombe Fair, held annually and celebrated by a well-known folksong of the same name, featuring 'Old Uncle Tom Cobley and All'. Its words were first published in 1880. The Old Inn dates from the 14th century and was apparently built by those who were building St Pancras Church, just across the road.
