Running along the stream of Pendle Water, Roughlee is known for its white railings and links with the Pendle Witches – one of whom, Alice Nutter, has been immortalised as a statue in the village. Explore our village history here or find out more from the local History Group, who are happy to try and answer any of your questions.
The Roughlee Village Centre offers a vibrant events programme to welcome both residents and visitors. Roughlee has several accommodation providers to suit all budgets: Bed and Breakfast, Caravan Parks or self-catering cottages. They make the village an ideal base for exploring Pendleside and the Forest of Bowland AONB. Further details on the wider area are available from Visit Pendle.
