Wanted & Lost

A Devonshire market town in the picturesque valley of the small river Culm, 6.5 km (4 miles) NNE of Collumpton, approximately 3-km (2 m) from Junction 27 of the M5.

The town relied heavily on industry, particularly textiles, and White's Devonshire Directory of 1850 recording that "Uffculme had formerly several large woollen and worsted manufactories, and it still has one factory, . . a large brewery, belonging to Mr. W. Furze; several malting houses, and three corn mills...", and Coldharbour Mill at the western end of the town is now a museum recording Uffculme's textile industry with working machines displaying all stages of wool prepartion.
