Sticklepath

A village near Okehampton in Devon on the former Cornwall to Exeter road on the northern edge of Dartmoor. Originally in the parish of Sampford Courtenay, descendants of James Mallett of Spreyton have lived here for centuries. Of particular interest are the Finch Foundry (see "Finch Foundry - The last working water-powered forge in England") where two generations of Malletts made farm tools, and the White Rock where John Wesley, the father of the Methodist movement, first preached in Devon. For more information about Sticklepath see "Sticklepath" in Wikipedia.
