A delightful village on the north-east edge of Dartmoor, with busy streets and a nice selection of shops and several tea rooms that are overlooked by the impressive Pepper Pot Market House. As with other Dartmoor villages local legend is rife, like the sad story about Mary Whiddon who was shot on her wedding day by a jealous suitor, she is buried in the church with part of a touching inscription that reads; ‘Behold a matron, yet a maid’.
