    Default Fogintor quarry, Dartmoor


    An abandoned villiage and quarry near Princetown on Dartmoor. Pictures taken earlier this year just as the last of the snow was melting.

    Love this! There's something about Dartmoor that's so otherwordly, and your pics have captured that nicely, Simundo. And I'm mad about quarries and abandoned villages so this ticks all the boxes.
    Agree with FieldyM, though...a potted version of the history from the links would be good. :p:)

    I can't read and I can't write, but that don't really matter,
    I come from the west country and I can drive a tractor.

    Those photos are beautiful, did you use film? If you used digital, they are very well processed. Nice work :)
    Looks like a nice place.

    Yah nice one Simundo. Just watch out for the date and time on the shots mate, that aint allowed on the forum, I made the mistake ages ago!:)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Very nice, if I remember rightly you can find stones that were made for London bridge cut and shaped that were never used at Foggintor quarries, I think thatís the one.
