Pendle Hill

The other week, I took a lil trip to Pendle and did this really great walk through some woods, over hills and across fields with some of the most picturesque views! I’d pick the countryside over the city any day!

The story behind Pendle Hill are the Pendle witches. Basically, the trials of the Pendle witches in 1612 are among the most famous witch trials in English history. Twelve people were accused of witchcraft and went to trial. The wild accusations escalated, fuelled by a general feeling of unrest and fear of witchcraft across the country, making this the biggest and most notorious witch trial.
