Sticklepath is a village in Devon, on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park in the Taw Valley. It is believed that ‘stickle’ means steep, and that the name comes from the steep pathway that was part of the route from Exeter through Okehampton (a neighbour of Sticklepath) which continued on to Launceston. The village is not mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, but the omission could be because it lay within three parishes and did not become one in its own right until 1987. However, the Ladywell Stone, which has been dated to around the 10th century AD, demonstrates that there must have been a settlement in Sticklepath at that time. Documents from the 13th century prove that it was in existence at then. The village’s close proximity to the River Taw meant that it could harness its power and it became, quite naturally a centre for the wool trade.
