Probably best known for the annual spectacular event known as the Sticklepath Fire Show, this lovely small village is also home to the National Trust’s Finch Foundry.
A fascinating history to this village, as it used to be the main road to the west, and travellers once included the preacher John Wesley. Take a minute to visit the Quaker burial ground and the tea room behind the foundry.
This is a wonderful place to start and finish a walk through beautiful Skaigh Woods, alongside the Taw River and up onto the open moor should you be feeling energetic!
Two pubs, two tea rooms and a shop help to keep Sticklepath a thriving and lively village.
