Turnalt Farm Walking Sticks
This is a page, which show some of the walking
sticks that we previously made at Turnalt Farm. This kind of stick
is used mainly by shepherds on hill sheep farms.
The stick has a Hazel wood shaft and a handle that is
made from a tup's horn.
The horn handle can be plain or decorated with a carved thistle or drawings of sheep, lambs or dogs.
Below are pictures of walking sticks that were made using deer horn for the handle.
