Webb, P., 2017, Former Methodist Chapel, Sticklepath, Dartmoor, Devon (Report - Watching Brief). SDV361115.

Archaeological monitoring and recording was undertaken during groundworks associated with the extension and conversion of the former Methodist Chapel, Sticklepath.
The monitoring identified that the northern wall of the existing leat structure had largely been covered by overburden, probably from a previous phase of levelling the ground behind the chapel. Within the chapel, the footings of a 20th century partition wall were identified.
