Pendle Sculpture Trail

The fascinating true story of the Pendle Witches is being told in “stone” at this new visitor attraction. The Pendle Sculpture Trail has ten ceramic plaques. Each has its own unique symbols which represent each of the Pendle people who were hanged 400 years ago in the biggest witchcraft trial in this country. Families can enjoy finding the plaques as they are presented in a treasure trail style quiz to be hunted down and found! There is also stunning new work from Lead Artist, Philippe Handford, including a “walking wall”, an eerie tree that will grab you by the roots, and "tumbling" tree arches. Other sculptures are a life size Witchfinder General figure and creatures such as bats and a spider. The trail is situated in a lovely woodland setting in Aitken Wood, just outside of Barley. A leaflet describing the trail and how to get to it can be downloaded from the Visit Pendle website.
