Pendle Forest History Group


Hidden away in a corner of East Lancashire is a relatively undiscovered place of natural beauty and historical interest known as Pendle Forest. It lies within the ancient Forest of Bowland and at its heart is Pendle Hill. There is a great deal of history relating to this fascinating region some already documented such as the trial and execution of the Lancashire Witches and some still awaiting discovery.

Pendle Forest History Group meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm in Barley Village Hall and you can join the members at these regular meetings or on any of the activities they organise.

The group has a collection of documents relevant to the local area and various items of memorabilia donated by the public. Many of the documents can be forwarded by email if you wish to see them. Click here to view the 2023 archive list (pdf) →
