Widecombe in the Moor, Dartmoor, Devon - October 25, 2018

Widecombe in the Moor - Church House and Sexton's Cottage a National Trust property. Standing in front of the building can just be seen a 15-inch naval shell, which was donated to the village after the First World War to thank the villagers for supplying troops with sphagnum moss. This grows in abundance in the damp Dartmoor conditions, and is said to have healing properties. It was used as an emergency field dressing for injured troops.
