Moscombe is a fictional place name, but nearby Tavistock has been built up over the centuries, from prehistoric dwellings to a thirteenth century market town licensed to trade in tin from the Cornish tannaries. Tavistock has grown steadily over subsequent generations to become the pretty town it now is.  Just outside Tavistock is the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake (1540-1596), the 16th century mariner who circumnavigated the globe.
