Princetown: Former Yelverton to Princetown railway
Princetown: Former Yelverton to Princetown railway
This is the trackbed of the former Yelverton to Princetown railway that opened in 1883 and closed in 1956. Here the railway traverses the slopes of North Hessary Tor, looking towards Princetown. The solitary distant rock outcrop visible on the horizon is South Hessary Tor in SX5972.

The trackbed here now forms a section of the long distance footpath of the Dartmoor Way.
