View from Weets Hill

Barnoldswick is situated on the northern end of the Pendle Hill to Weets Hill (397m) line. In order to appreciate the setting, a visit to Letcliffe Park reveals all. The rural setting is inspiring with view towards Longridge Fell and the Yorkshire Dales. When the sun is just right you can clearly see Malham Cove in the distance. The rolling landscape, a relict of a previous Ice Age (drumlins abound here about....) makes the area much more interesting. Signposts bearing the Pendle Witch logo remind you that fittingly, Barnoldswick is included in the Pendle Way (Section 1 of 8 - a 73km (45 mile) rond trip. On leaving Barnoldswick by car you have quick and easy access to Clitheroe, Burnley and Skipton - the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.
