The elegant I2o-feet-high granite tower of St Pancras soars above the huddled cottages of Widecombe, a tiny village in the middle of Dartmoor. The church tower was paid for by the prosperous tin miners who had worked the moors since medieval times. On each second Tuesday in September the village echoes with the sounds of Widecombe Fair, featured in the famous song along with 'Uncle Tom Cobleigh and all'. The Old Inn certainly lives up to its name having been built as a pub in the fourteenth century. The two bars, with low ceilings and big stone fireplaces, have two ghosts, but about whom little is known. One is of a man called Harry and the other a young girl who could possibly be Mary Jay, an eighteenth-century orphan who hanged herself when she became pregnant by a farm-hand.
