Pendle Hill (Lancashire) Reviews
Newest Review: ... other walks guided around the village which you may find more suitable, although I only did the Pendle hill walk so cannot comment how these are. Pendle Hill became famous because of the amount of witches, 13 in total from the area. They were also known for the amount of people they had killed through witchcraft. All 13 of the witches were tried and 10 of them had been hanged in Lancaster which is not far from Pendle. The village of barley green in which Pendle hill is in, is your typical old style village, with a bus operating every 2 hours, so I would suggest driving there as the buses are not reliable. I also found the area is not as... more

This Easter Sunday the family and I went up Pendle Hill, it is a fantastic day out. It is something that not everyone could enjoy as there is no highlighted wheel chair access unlike some walks you can go on and you definitely can not take a pram up there! However Pendle Hill has a visitor centre and a few picnic benches with a small play ground to the side, so if you wanted to just admire the idyllic village you could without taking a walk up the hill. They also have a few other walks guided around the village which you may find more suitable, although I only did the Pendle hill walk so cannot comment how these are. Pendle Hill became famous ...

I recently walked up Pendle Hill after the tales of mystery and witchcraft had grabbed my partners attention. As we enjoy a bit of a ramble every now and again we thought we'd head on over and take a walk. I won't go into the history of Pendle and it's infamous hill as the other reviews have covered that better than I ever could, so I thought I'd just review the walk and the hill itself for any budding walkers out there. We started out in a village called Barley which is virtually at the foot of the hill, and parked in the car park just over the bridge opposite the village hall. Our journey took us past the two reservoirs near to Pendle ... Read the complete review

When I look out of my window in the morning, I am greeted by the lovely sight of Pendle Hill. I have been up it many many times, and know it very well, so I thought, hey, why not share my experiences! Pendle Hills is located in the north-east of Lancashire, England, near the towns of Burnley, Nelson, Colne, Clitheroe and Padiham. Whilst this is no huge mountain it is still 557 metres (1,827 ft) above mean sea level. Which makes it a fair old pull! Pendle his is famous for the story of the Pendle witches, if you visit the nearby village of Sabden you can find out all about there history in the little gift shops and quaint cafe's. There are also ... Read the complete review

Pendle Hill (1827 ft / 557 m) [Background: Although not strictly an attraction in Clitheroe itself, Pendle Hill is located in the town's immediate vicinity (about three miles to the East). It has a very interesting history as well as being popular with walkers.] Surrounded by several smaller villages, in addition to the market town of Clitheroe with its historic castle, Pendle Hill dominates the East Lancashire landscape. Quaint settlements, all with their unique character, such as Whalley, Sabden, Newchurch, Barley, Downham, Trawden, Padiham, Fence, Higham, Barrowford, Gisburn and Chatburn have all developed in the shadow of this ...
