Foggin Tor is probably better know as a quarry than it is a tor, but its there in the name and above the quarry lies a few rocks as the summit however the true summit was probably lost when they took the stone from here. The stone from this quarry was used to build the Dartmoor Prison and a number of buildings in Princetown itself, the nearby railway which terminated at Princetown, helped carry the stone the short distance, The quarry ceased trading in the 1920s-30s and is now used by the army as a training site and adventure groups looking for a challenge, including Bear Grylls who used this spot with the England manager, Gareth Southgate. The walk here is simple, either along the track that leads to Yellowmeade Farm, or from Princetown itself following the railway track bed out from the car park. The views south and west are excellent, particularly over Kings Tor and the Staple Tors. No firing ranges near here.
