I live in Accrington, Lancashire, with my two children and enjoy walking in the area immensely. For 20 years I have been an active member of Hyndburn Ramblers and as such have covered lots of miles on foot. Pendle Hill is one of my favourite places to walk and I love leading Group walks over the hill and through the areas concerned within this guide.
This guide is designed to be just that, a guide, but I have included snippets of facts about various places and hopefully you will read enough to pique your interest not only about the Pendle Witches but also about Lancashire – its folklore and history, people and places.
So I leave you to traverse the Forests of Pendle and Bowland like those unfortunate men and women did 400 years ago and after completing the walk it is hoped you will be left spellbound.
My thanks must go to all the family and friends who helped me with all aspects of the walk and the booklet - especially the route walking and production.
