More about this scene

Caption for Yarcombe, The Church And Vicarage C1960: Yarcombe is situated in a beautiful fold of the Blackdown Hills, one of the least spoiled parts of East Devon. Its parish church of St John the Baptist dates from the 15th century, but it has suffered a great deal of Victorian restoration.

Memories of Yarcombe

I remember the shop at Yarcombe was owned by a Mr & Mrs Harding. She always referred to her husband as 'Daddy', consequently the shop was known locally as "Daddy Hardings". It sold everything. The Blue Line buses from Londons Victoria Bus Station used to stop at the Yarcombe Inn. They would put out a big company flag when the bus was due.
