St Mary’s Church
St Mary’s Church, Sticklepath
Nestled at the west end of the village, St Mary’s Church is well worth a visit.
The site of the current church represents almost 1,000 years of worship in the village and it is possibly the oldest Chantry in the Diocese of Exeter.
During the mid 19th century the original chapel was destroyed by fire. The building you see today dates from 1875.
The history of this special place is recorded on the notice board near the Font and the stained glass windows are of particular interest.
In December 2010 the church was under threat of closure and as a result, the Friends of St Mary’s was formed to help fundraise and ensure this piece of village heritage is secured for future generations to enjoy.

The church is open every day for those wishing to spend some quiet time or simply to learn more about this unique place.
