Walkhampton 1900 vs 2020. Little seems to have changed in 120 years. The war memorial was obviously erected about 20 years after the first photo. The chances are that several of the young lads in the picture fought in the Great War and sadly some of their names may be on the memorial. C G Neal’s the grocer’s shop on the left was a shop until early this century but is now a private house.

      Hi Christopher,

      I believe the school closed in 1926. Now a dwelling.

      Middleworth Farm has been ruinous since the 1920’s. Although the farmhouse was demolished the barn still survives and is rather a fine ruin – it has an inscribed stone ‘ML1885’

      Kind Regards,

      Dartmoor Explorations (Steve)
