You’ll always get a warm welcome here in Pendle. Located as we are in Lancashire in Northern England we are famous for our warm-hearted welcome. And this is not all we are famous for. Situated on the southern edge of the Yorkshire dales and in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty our stunning countryside appeals to walkers and cyclists alike. The iconic Pendle Hill offers breathtaking views. A climb to its summit so inspired George Fox in 1652 that he set up the worldwide Quaker Movement. Our heritage excites and fascinates our visitors. The Pendle Witches who lived here over 400 years ago were part of Britain’s biggest witchcraft Trial. We are also a diverse area offering some of the best events in the UK, including the award-winning Blues Festival and the Pendle Walking Festival.
