Product Description


An illustrated guide to 30 short circular walks on and around Pendle Hill. Hand-written and profusely illustrated in Jack Keighley's unique and highly distinctive style. All the walks are circular and fairly uniform in length, with an average of about 6 miles, making them ideal as half-day family rambles. In 1612 ten 'Pendle Witches' went to the scaffold. These miserable wretches and their supposed victims lived in the villages and farmsteads surrounding Pendle Hill. Though nearly four centuries have since elapsed, the magical aura of witchcraft still pervades an area which is as wild and beautiful now as it was in King James's day. Access is easy along the A56 and A59, whilst the M65 extends from the national motorway network into the heart of Lancashire Witch Country.
