    Pendle Hill Information

    Pendle Hill summit is 557 metres (1,827 ft). It is an isolated hill, separated from the Pennines to the east and the Forest of Bowland (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) to the northwest, within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

    Pendle Hill is famous for its links to three events which took place in the 17th century: the Pendle witch trials (1612), Richard Towneley’s barometer experiment (1661), and the claimed visitation to George Fox (1652), which led to the foundation of the Quaker movement. A Bronze Age burial site has been also discovered at the summit of the hill.

    The most popular route for ascending the hill begins in the village of Barley, which lies to the east. This route also provides the steepest ascent. Other nearby villages include Downham, Newchurch-in-Pendle, and Sabden.
