Regardless of when you go up Pendle you'll get a good view as it's usually not cloud covered for long. The walk is steep but the steps and metalled sections from Barley make it easier. Our 6 and 7 year old managed the route with a bit of moaning on the way up and a happier return. With young kids... More

It's quite a hike to reach the top of Pendle Hill but well worth the effort. The hike up and view from top will give you some spectacular views. Ideal to hike on a Sunday morning and finish it off with a good lunch from a pub in the village

This is the second time we've climbed the hill and I actually found it easier this time, probably down to me giving up smoking! We parked at the side of the road part way up the back road out of Barley just before the entrance to the footpath. Lots of people start there rather than from the main car park... More

Great place to go for a nice scenic walk, top tip start from 5 and work your way backwards to 1. First tip the lady in the café gave us. Nice easy walk some muddy trail's, bliss sound of tranquil water running along the walk. Various views from different points of the walk. Nice touch to the walk. Highly recommended.... More

Park up in Barley and follow any one of the well signed routes up to the trig point on top of "the big end" of Pendle. Wrap up warm and be ready for strong winds on even a calm day. The views make the effort well worthwhile.
