BOWLAND FOREST :: Explore :: Pendle Hill

This area of Bowland is named after Pendle Hill, which dominates the landscape, and is well known for its links with the Pendle witches and the witch trials of the 17th century. Many of the Pendle villages, such as Downham, Barley, Roughlee and Newchurch were inhabited by the Pendle witches.

Walking in Pendle offers many delights, and there are 2 national trails (long distance footpaths) that pass through Pendle, i.e. the Pendle Way and the Bronte Way.

pendle Hill is topped with thick layers of peat fromed from the decomposition of sphagnum mosses and provides a rich habitat for wild flowers, insects, birds and animals. The surround lowlands are dotted with many interesting villages, rivers and small woodlands.
