Lancashire Witches Walk

The Lancashire Witches Walk Guide

The Lancashire Witches Walk Guide

by: Ian Thornton-Bryar
The Lancashire Witches Walk was developed to provide an interesting and enjoyable walking route linking locations associated with the legendry Pendle Witches. The book begins with some history of these events at the time of King James 1st providing a context for the walk.

The route, from Barrowford to Lancaster Castle, is a sustainable 51 mile long distance walk that is very varied in the type of countryside along its journey. Lovely wooded valleys contrast with high and really wild moorland fells and a couple of small historic urban areas, often giving magnificent views, are its main features.
The route is meticulously described in 14 sections and what makes the guide a joy to use are the Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer maps with the route very clearly outlined. There are also some full colour photographs and contact information for planning transport and accommodation.

The stages of the walk are as follows
Barrowford to Barley 3.2 miles
Barley to Rigg of England 3.7 miles
