Lancashire's Hill Country Holiday Brochure

Come to Pendle and you will be bewitched and amazed!

Nestling in the Lancashire Pennines Pendle has some of the most stunning scenery in the North of England. There are countless country walks, short and long provided by our many free guides, including the walk up Pendle Hill.

Pendle Hill is iconic and legendary – on a clear day the views from its summit extend to both East and West Coasts. The view was so inspiring it made George Fox set up the Quakers after his visit in 1652. The area also inspired the famous Bronte sisters, who used to visit Wycoller in Pendle regularly.

Pendle is, however, perhaps most famed for its witches! Over 400 years ago, in 1612, a group of mainly women from Pendle were tried in the country’s most famous witchcraft trial.
You can still follow in the footsteps of these remarkable women who were persecuted for their “strange ways” on the many trails that exist that bring their stories to life, including a brand new attraction, the Pendle Sculpture Trail.

Can you spot which witch is which? Ten individually designed ceramic plaques, each representing the ten witches, have been placed in this woodland trail. By using the free guide you will be able to read the clues and enter our fantastic competition. The trail is great for families, as is Thornton Hall Farm, an award winning family farm attraction and we also have a number of family cycle rides.

Whlist you’re at it why not check out our multi award-winning programme of events throughout the year, including Pendle Walking and Cycling Festivals, as well as Britain’s best Blues Festival.
