Widecombe In The Moor

Widecombe-in-the-Moor is a small village located within the heart of the Dartmoor National Park in Devon, England. The village is probably best known for Widecombe Fair, held annually and celebrated by a well-known folk song of the same name, featuring 'Old Uncle Tom Cobley and All'.
 
Its words were first published in 1880. The characters from the song are featured in many of the souvenirs on sale in the local shops. Also popular are the traditional 'Toby Jugs' - a type of mug, with a handle, shaped as a three dimensional caricature of a person's head - sometimes fictional, sometimes a celebrity.
