Widecombe-in-the-moor Church

Widecombe-in-the-moor Church in the heart of Dartmoor, dedicated to St.Pancras, has its own claim to fame being the scene of the Great Thunderstorm of 1638.
Lightning struck the church tower and part of it fell through the roof. A fire-ball then passed through the church and four people died.
Old wallboards inside the church tell of the tale - well some of it, as locals will tell you that the storm and fire-ball was due to none other than Satan himself.
