Pendle Hill rises above the ancient hunting ground called the Forest of Bowland. Once home of wolves and wild boar, it is still an untamed place, full of mystery.

Beneath Pendle Hill are the tiny hamlets and farms which played a part in the true story of the Pendle Witches. It is a story which still haunts the traveller today. How did ten villagers come to be found guilty of witchcraft? And why does mystery still surround them even though their trial is one of the best documented in the world?

If you follow the trail, you will find out about that fateful year of 1612. You will explore the old villages under Pendle Hill where events took place.

You'll follow the lonely road the Pendle Witches took through the Ribble Valley to Lancaster Castle where they stood trial. Along the way there are places to visit which help piece together a mystery which is almost 400 years old.
