Pendle Way - Part 8






Ancient field tracks lead to a 17th Century hall in the village of Roughlee which has associations with the gentlewoman Alice Nutter - the most enigmatic of the Pendle Witches of 1612.

Walk Waypoints

  1. 1 From Barley Information Centre, walk through the car park and along the track running parallel to the road. The way leads past Narrowgates cottages and along the track by the river to Whitehough.
  2. 2 At the waymark post turn left through a gateway and past Whitehough Farm. Turn right up the lane to a stile by a small red brick building on the left and follow the path through the wood, passing Whitehough Camp School on the left. Keep to the left of the wood, crossing three streams then continuing on to a stile.
  3. 3 Enter the field and follow the hedge on the left. Just before a wall go left over a stile and detour round Intake Farm, passing over two more stiles to emerge at the lane beyond the farm. Turn left down the lane, then left at the end.
  4. 4 Where the road bends to the left, turn right along a track. The view stretches down the Sabden Valley. After 150 metres turn right over a stile and descend to Croft House Farm. Pass to the left of the house over a stile and continue straight on to a footbridge. Cross the next two fields in the same direction and bear left at the bottom to go through two gates to the lane by Roughlee Hall. Carry on to the road.
  5. 5 Roughlee lies to the right but the way continues straight across the road. Climb the stile and take the stepping stones over Pendle Water. Bear left up the hill to the trees, then straight uphill heading slightly to the left to a stile in the wall at the top of the hill.
  6. 6 Follow the field boundary on your right downhill to West Pasture Farm. Go through a gate and over a stile. Continue straight on past the barn on the right, between adjacent hedgerows then down the next field. At the bottom go over a footbridge then turn left, go over a stile and then right into the lane, away from Pasture House.
  7. 7 Carry on down the lane to the end, and turn left at the junction to follow the road into Barrowford. Cross the road at the bottom by the White Bear and take the footbridge into the Park. Turn left to reach Pendle Heritage Centre, the starting and finishing point of the Pendle Way.
