Midweek Day Walk - Pendle Hill - Lancashire Witches
19 people attending
11 places left
Relatively short walk of around 7 miles but we'll be talking in some of the history of the Pendle area and it's connections to the Pendle Witches on this Halloween Thursday Day Walk!
I would imagine the car parks will be busy on this day so ensure you get there early enough to find alternatives.
The picturesque villages nestled in the shadows of the infamous Pendle Hill have a dark history of intrigue and witchcraft. The route starts at the Pendle Heritage Centre and follows the route the Pendle Witches took through the Ribble Valley to Lancaster Castle where they stood trial.
