A photographic guide to one of England's most characterful hills, by award-winning photographer and filmaker, Alastair Lee.

Although not the highest of the Penines, Pendle Hill has the most impressive vertical scale on all sides. There are not many other hills like it within close proximity: directly to the east there is nothing taller until the Ural Mountains over 3000 miles away. To the south lies the urban corridor of Colne, Nelson, Brierfield and Burnley, with Boulsworth and the Burnley Moors on the horizon. To the north are the famous Yorkshire peaks of Pen-y-Gent and Ingleborough, and beyond these the Langdale Pikes in the Lake District can be seen on a clear day. Looking west across the Ribble Valley the towns of Downham and Clitheroe are in clear view, and directly to the west is Blackpool Tower and the Irish Sea.

Taken in all seasons and weathers, Alastair Lee's superb photographs build an intimate and atmospheric portrait of Pendle Hill.
