More about this scene


Caption for Yarcombe, Yarcombe Inn C1955: Uplyme's church tower is 47 feet high and a prominent landmark, once used a triangulation station by mapmakers. The medieval church has some particularly grotesque gargoyles - one depicts Judas Iscariot being eaten by a demon. The walls we see here lining the churchyard path have since been removed.

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.
