A particularly large church for such a small village. No doubt the wider parish has made it so grand. It's a wonderful church with views up to the moors. On a warm day the church is particurly cool in side. A welcome retreat! There's some...More

Like all of the shops and the pub, no disabled access! Don't go to Widecombe with a wheelchair user. On the plus side, it's an exceptionally cheap day out and you get to see the beautiful Dartmoor ponies on the way!

This church is very large inside, no wonder it is known as the Cathedral of the moors. Such peace and some interesting pieces of history inside. Look for the rescued Tom Cobley model

Such a wonderful church with a great history. Our favourite view of any on Dartmoor is to sit in the churchyard looking up towards the moors. Breathtaking.

Attended St.Pancras Church on Christmas morning, but unfortunately no disabled entrance, which was a shame, so my wheelchair had to be bumped/ carried down steps into the Church. I know it’s difficult, and expensive, adapting these lovely old buildings for equal access, but it’s important....More
