The Yelverton-to-Princetown railway

HIT teamBased on the Virtual Burrator environment, this project is attempting to recreate the industrial heritage evident around the Burrator and Sheepstor area of South Dartmoor.

Of particular interest is the Yelverton-to-Princetown Railway (at Burrator & Sheepstor Halt), an isolated station which was used to disembark construction teams for the Burrator Reservoir project and witnessed the transfer of French and American prisoners to Princetown Prison and the transport of Dartmoor granite for use in the building of such national icons as London Bridge and Nelson’s Column.
