Join OutdoorLads for a walk around the beautiful village of Pendle, in the east of Lancashire, England, near the towns of Burnley, Nelson, Colne, Clitheroe and Padiham.

The beautiful village of Pendle nestles in the dark shadows of Pendle Hill. Pendle is steeped in witchcraft history and dark magic. We will follow the route that the infamous Pendle Witches took through the village where they stood trial.

Setting off from the relaxing picnic site in Barley, we will follow the pathway up to the Lower Ogden Reservoir and then head to Meadow Top Barn. Passing through the village of Roughlee we can stop to admire the famous statue of Alice Nutter, (alleged witch (died 20 August 1612), after being hanged as a result of the Pendle witch hunt. From Roughlee, the trail will take us through Crow Tree Meadows before following the Pendle water through to Thorney Holme. Upon returning back to base, we can stop off at the Cabin or the historic Pendle Inn, well renowned for its home-cooked food and refreshments.

This is a dog friendly walk so please bring your pooches along. The more the merrier!!
