The area of Lancashire known as Pendle is at the eastern edge of the county, bordering on the Yorkshire Dales and the Ribble Valley. Pendle takes its name from Pendle Hill, which at 1831ft high dominates the skyline of the area and provides many opportunities for hill-walking and scenic drives. It adjoins the Lancashire boroughs of Burnley and Ribble Valley. Pendle has a total population of around 90,000 people.
Pendle offers some of England’s finest countryside, as well as beautiful villages, countryside, industrial heritage and modern facilities. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal flows through the major towns, once a focal point of the industrial age but now a quiet and often beautiful waterway just waiting to be explored. The area is also closely associated with the Pendle Witches, well-known in the UK in the 16th and 17th centuries.
