Hi thor@odin™ Peter Thanks for the YSL.
It is a very old town. Very small but stuningly beautiful and made famous by the song Widecombe Fair. Tone
"Tom Pearce, Tom Pearce, lend me your grey mare,
All along, down along, out along, lee,
For I want for to go to Widecombe Fair,
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all."
"And when shall I see again my grey mare?"
"By Friday soon, or Saturday noon,
So they harnessed and bridled the old grey mare
And off they drove to Widecombe fair,
Then Friday came, and Saturday noon,
But Tom Pearces old mare hath not trotted home,
So Tom Pearce he got up to the top o' the hill
And he seed his old mare down a-making her will,
So Tom Pearce's old mare, her took sick and died,
And Tom he sat down on a stone, and he cried
But this isn't the end o' this shocking affair,
Nor, though they be dead, of the horrid career
Of Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
When the wind whistles cold on the moor of the night
Tom Pearce's old mare doth appear gashly white,
And all the long night he heard skirling and groans,
From Tom Pearce's old mare in her rattling bones,
Oh you beat me to it Tone :)) I like the shot and the song :))
Hi Nick. LOL. Thanks, it's a quaint little place with so much history all around. I was looking for Grimpound, a Bronze age settlement but ended up finding another Bronze age settlement not on the map or with any sign posts. Photos coming soon. Yes a great song:)))
Very beautiful picture. LIKE.
