Whitchurch is a beautiful village situated on the edge of Dartmoor and abutting Tavistock. It has its own Post Office cum Village store. It has an 11th Century Anglican church situated next door to the Whitchurch Inn.
The Landlord of the inn wanted to celebrate 20 years of his service to the village people. He
invited the church to partner on the day. James Medland of St Andrew's Church championed the partnership and took the lead in organising the day.
With the kind support of the local council, they were able to close the road for the day and so was born Whitchurch's own street party.
