near to Princetown, Devon, Great Britain

Princetown: Former Methodist Chapel and current Church
Princetown: Former Methodist Chapel and current Church
The building on the left is the former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, which certainly existed by 1888 as it shown on the Ordnance Survey map of that year.
Beyond it the white building is The United Church of Princetown - a Methodist/Anglican Ecumenical Partnership created when SX5873 : Princetown: The Church of St Michael & All Angels was closed in 1994. This building was originally a Family Centre and an overnight hostel for Dartmoor prisoners' relations who had travelled a long distance to visit inmates.

The street in the foreground is Two Bridges Road, while the road leading away to the right from the junction is Tor Royal Lane. The Ordnance Survey show a spot height of 416 metres or 1365 feet above sea level at this road junction.

The photograph was taken at dusk on a damp October afternoon with a low cloud base, hence the somewhat murky image.
