Pendle Way

45 miles (72 km)

Follow the Pendle Way through Lancashire and visit Barnoldswick, Thornton-in-Craven, Wycoller, Reedley, Newchurch and Pendle Hill on this challenging walk.
The climb to the 557 metre (1,827ft) summit of Pendle Hill is a real highlight. There are fabulous views over the Pennines to the east, the Bowland Fells to the northwest, and the West Pennine Moors to the south. You also pass the beautiful Upper and Lower Ogden Reservoirs on this section of the walk.
The area is famous for the Pendle Hill Witch Trials. These took place in 1612 when twelve people from the area were charged with the murders of ten people by the use of witchcraft. Ten were subsequently found guilty and executed by hanging.
