A circular walk from the village of Slaidburn in the heart of the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire. Slaidburn sits exactly halfway along the 51-mile Lancashire Witches Walk, created to commemorate the trials of the Pendle Witches in 1612, following the route that the witches were most likely taken to be sentenced and hanged at Lancaster Castle. The walk follows a short stretch of this trail, before circling back through rolling pastures and returning alongside the River Hodder. The walk includes a steady ascent at the start and follows a mixture of village pavements, woodland paths, field paths and farm tracks. You will need to negotiate many gates and stiles (including fence stiles, stone wall stiles and one ladder stile). You will be sharing most of the fields with livestock, both cattle and sheep. Allow 3 hours.
