Join us for a FREE 9 day walking festival - Together for Our Landmark - Saturday 18th to Sunday 26th September.
Did you enjoy regular walks from home during lockdown? But need some further ideas of where to explore? Participate in our 'New to Walking' Festival and experience the Pendle Hill area with the support of knowledgeable guides. Learn more about the area's fascinating natural and cultural heritage, find some hidden gems away from the crowds and gain confidence to venture out on self-guided walks in the future!
We are delighted to announce that we have been granted an extension period for the programme to continue to run until 31st October 2022. The original plan was to complete our objectives by March next year, but the impact of the coronavirus has created the need for activity to take place during an additional summer. With thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, this has been made possible and we are now able to make up for lost time.
We are calling on local naturalists and the general public alike to help carry out a Big Wildlife Count at Spring Wood near Whalley this year.

From Medieval monastics to radicals and reformers, Bowland and Pendle Hill are full of fascinating history – not all of it well known to a wider world.
