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.

Sticklepath

St. Mary's Chapel.

Until the 20th century Sticklepath was part of the parish of Sampford Courtenay, a village some miles to the north, so people either had to travel to Sampford or South Tawton for weddings and baptisms. This may help to explain why locals were so receptive to the Quaker and Methodist movements in the 18th century.
