DARTMOOR MISSION HALL AND THE FOGGINTOR QUARRY SCHOOL (WESLEYAN CHAPEL)
The purpose built school Foggintor School (now a car park known locally as Four Winds) on the Two Bridges – Tavistock Road provided education for the children from Foggintor and the surrounding area between 1915 and 1936. Prior to 1915, the education of the children was provided at the Dartmoor Mission Hall (1896 – 1913) and at the small Wesleyan Chapel at Foggintor Quarry (from mid 19th Century to 1896, then briefly from 1913 – 1915). This post offers a then and now view of these two locations.
