About this Event

Pendleton - Nick of Pendle - Pendle Hill - Pendleton

GRADE: MEDIUM

Distance: 14.5km

Max elevation: 557m

Total ascent: 450m (approx)

This nine-mile circuit avoids the popular and increasingly busy honeypot routes to explore the lesser known crags, cloughs and ghylls on the rugged slopes of Pendle.

We start in the pretty village of Pendleton and climb to the Nick o’ Pendle before walking along whaleback ridge to reach the summit trig on the ‘Big End’ for outstanding views over the Ribble Valley, Forest of Pendle and up to the Limestone country of the Yorkshire Dales.

On a clear day, the Lakeland Fells and even the mountains of Snowdonia should be visible. We return via the western edge of the summit plateau descending beside one of the steep cloughs on the western flank to return to our start point.

Post-walk refreshments will be available in the CAMRA Award-winning village pub – the Swan with Two Necks. Pub car park is shared with village hall. On street parking is limited in the village so please park with consideration. (Please note the pub doesn't serve food until 5pm)

Clitheroe is just over an hour by train from Manchester Victoria (a train departs at 08:39 to arrive 09:56 and we'll arrange taxi sharing for the 10 mins transfer).

This walk will be led by Mark Sutcliffe, Editorial Director, Salar Media

Don't forget, you will need to bring some water and a packed lunch for a halfway stop. More information will be sent out in the week before the walk.

Hope you can join us.
