Located in the rolling hills of the Lancashire countryside, the borough of Pendle is most famously associated with the witch trials of 1612. During the 17th century, Pendle was deemed to be a somewhat dark and unholy area and the inhabitants lived in fear of a group of local women who were accused of practicing witchcraft. Hailing largely from the same two families and presided over by their elderly matriarchs, these women met a rather grisly fate that saw them jailed, tried and eventually hanged for the crimes they were convicted of.
This gruesome episode in Pendle’s past is still a very prevalent part of the region’s identity, with walking tours of ‘witch country’ and a sculpture park telling the witches’ story through stone artwork. There is even a statue of Alice Nutter, one of the so-called witches who was hanged, in the Pendle village of Roughlee. This macabre fascination with witchcraft aside, there are of course lots of much cheerier pursuits to be enjoyed in the Pendle countryside too, with an endless choice of hilltop treks, canal-side strolls and cycling routes to enjoy.
Here at Hog Roast Pendle, we always add a touch of magic to every single plate of food we produce. We can assure you though, that we don’t meddle with the dark arts to achieve this!
