It’s the time of the year to dust off those walking boots and head to Lancashire’s witch country over the annual Pendle Walking festival.
Now in its fifth year, the event coincides with the Fiftieth anniversary of the Forest of Bowland gaining the status of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with with walks that cover this area clearly marked in the programme.
Starting on the 30 August and running until the following weekend, the Festival offers over 70 guided walks of varying lengths and difficulty ratings and all are free.
It gives walkers of all abilities a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the beautiful countryside of this part of Pennine Lancashire.
From easy walks of two miles to more challenging ones of 14 miles, there really is something for everyone, and there’s no need for walkers to bring any specialist walking equipment.
