Church of St Pancras, Widecombe-in-the-Moor
OS Grid: SX7187976792 streetmap
Known as the 'Cathedral of Dartmoor', St Pancras church was hit by a thunderbolt in 1638, killing four people and injuring 60. With one of the tallest towers in England, it stands sentinel over the village green.
Simple interior with arcades of granite monoliths and white ceiled roof with painted bosses. A three-rabbit boss, of three heads with just three ears, is a rare symbol of the trinity.
