Having been brought up in Brierfield i saw Pendle Hill everyday. I first did this walk when i was 17 and have been back to Pendle many times since. This is a great walk for everyone including those with children. I always go up the steep side (on the right as you're looking at it from Brierfield/Barley etc) and then... More

Been twice now. Once with friends and again with family and young children. They loved it and the kids were marching ahead full of energy. A good day out with kids and adults alike. The views are amazing. We stopped by the picnic site after for food and ball games.

We set off in winter clothes from Barley on a sunny autumn morning at around 9am. It wasn't long before I was regretting my choice of clothing as despite the cool temperatures I was working up a sweat due to the incline so I had to carry my winter coat. Towards the top of the well marked path the wind... More

This is a great walk with the kids. Been doing it since they were 6,7,8. We usually go up the steep side (on the right as you're looking at it from Barley) and then down the left side to make a circular route. However the less that steep side is actually a much better route, both up and down. It's... More

A bit of a trek to start but well worth the walk for the views. You cannot visit Pendle and not walk up this hill.

Climbed the hill last October with my husband. Took about 1.5 hrs from the carpark. Loved it, views from the top were amazing! Great for many ages & abilities. Rewarded ourselves with lunch at the pub down the bottom afterwards. Would do again. Great in autumn on a crisp day when it's cold but not too cold.

Long, hard, steep climb - most of it on stone steps. So take your time and enjoy the views (whilst catching your breath). The views are amazing and the steady climb down is much easier. On a wet day it would be tricky.
