Sabden

On the fringe of Pendle Forest, Sabden is set beneath the impressive bulk of Pendle Hill. This is the site of Pendle Ski Club's dry slopes, where tuition is available to visitors.  Pendle Hill itself is where George Fox, founder of the Quakers, had a vision, which led to the foundation of that movement.

The local handloom weavers of old were said to weave parkin using oatmeal as the warp and treacle as the weft! Pendle Antique Centre is a popular attraction. Housed in an old mill the centre has a constantly changing stock of Antique Furniture and bric-a-brac from British and European sources, most of which are refurbished on the premises.

Sabden is approximately 140m and higher above sea level and due to its position on Pendle Hill, it is usually 2°C colder than the surrounding settlements of Clitheroe and Whalley, Lancashire. The highest point in the village on road is the Nick of Pendle at 993 feet; on land Spence moor at 1,462 feet.

Sabden Brook, a tributary of the River Calder, Lancashire runs through the centre of the village. To the south of the village lies Sabden wood. The main rock type in Sabden is Lancashire gritsone, and the soil is mainly clay based.

If you are feeling a little peckish on your visit to Sabden you will find a delightful deli called San-witches, located on Whalley Road in the middle of the village, well worth a stop-off and bite to eat!

Have you tried the famous Malkin Pie? Based on ingredients thought to have been consumed by the witches at the Good Friday 'Great Feast' of Malkin Tower, the Malkin Pie recipe can be found on our Lancashire Recipes page.

Sabden is near to the famous Lancashire witches trail.  Read the story of the Pendle Witches.
