Pendle Witches Way

Lancashire

The Pendle Witches Way is a 48 mile journey from Sabden in Lancashire through the Ribble Valley and the Forest of Bowland to Lancaster.

The first part of the walk takes in the locations around Pendle Hill which are synonymous with the Pendle Witches - Higham, Fence, Newchurch-in-Pendle and Barley. These are the places where they lived and cast their spells through to where they were held and charged.

The men and women were then taken through the Ribble Valley and the Forest of Bowland - either by cart or even on foot - to their final place of trial and execution in Lancaster.
