Spreyton is a small rural village just north of Dartmoor in Devon. Spreyton is famous for its connection to the tale of “Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all” who came from, and is thought to be buried in Spreyton. Some believe that if Uncle Tom Cobley existed and did travel to Widecombe fair he would have travelled from Spreyton.
At present, the village has a small Primary School (Spreyton County Primary School), serving the village and the surrounding area. The "Uncle Tom Cobley" is the village pub, placed on the main street in the village. There is also a Parish Church, which holds the grave of 'Tom Cobley' within its Churchyard.
