This satisfying little hike explores the foothills of mighty Pendle and visits the grave of a highwaymen beheaded for his crimes in the middle ages then interred on the site of a much earlier Anglo-Saxon burial. The start and finish point adjacent to one of the finest real ale pubs in Britain is an added bonus…
Expanses of sky above the wild dramatic sweep of open moorland. Gentle and tidy lowlands, criss-crossed with dry stone walls and dotted with picturesque farms and villages. This is a place like no other, a place with a strong sense of stepping back in time to a forgotten part of the English countryside.
Walk in the footsteps of author J.R.R. Tolkien, who regularly stayed at Stonyhurst College in the Ribble Valley. This walk explores the richly beautiful surroundings that provided inspiration for “Middle Earth” in Lord of the Rings.
