Things to see & do
Uncover the story of the last working water-powered forge in England. Learn about the important part the Finch family and their foundry played in Dartmoor's industrial history and why Sticklepath was the ideal location to start a business.
Venture up to the gallery to learn about the history of water wheels, Dartmoor industry and the Finch family whose tools became famous in Victorian England. Once outside, spend a while on our viewing platform which overlooks our garden and its beautiful surroundings. From here, you can also see the launder, which supplies the water needed to drive the massive machinery.
Take a stroll through our cottage garden and see a wide range of plants and flowers and if you're lucky, some local wildlife. A perfect spot to relax and unwind.
