Yesterday a team of volunteers from Sticklepath village, along with STOCs (The Sticklepath and Okehampton Conservation Group), Ian Brooker from the DNPA and the National Trust carried out the annual clearance of the leat at Sticklepath. The leat feeds the Foundry at Finch which enables us to turn the waterwheels. Thank you to everyone who took part. We were very lucky with the weather too! And also a big thank you to the householders who allowed us to access the leat where it runs through their properties. Afterwards we had tea and doughnuts and then a pint in the Devonshire Inn! Here are a few pictures from the day.
The pub dog! The Devonshire Inn is a classic old Dartmoor pub – if you like an old fashioned pub then a visit is a must. Thank you to the Devonshire Inn too for supporting our efforts with soup and beer!
