Forest of Pendle
Forest of Pendle Leisure Park is located within the village of Roughlee, accessible from Junction 13 of the M65. It’s a small owners’ park located within an area of natural beauty and was the deserved winner of the ‘Best Kept Park Award 2008.’
Pendle Hill is a distinctive landmark with a summit of 557 metres above sea level. It is an isolated hill, separated from the Pennines to the east, the Bowland Fells to the north west and the West Pennine Moors to the south. A short distance from the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the hill forms a stunning backdrop to the Forest of Pendle Leisure Park.Arrange a Park TourHoliday Home Enquiry

Barnoldswick (affectionately known as Barlick) boasts the second highest concentration of independent shops in the UK and is a holder of the prestigious ‘Best British High Street Award.’ The town is noted for its manufacturing traditions – Bancroft Mill on the Stream and Steam trail is now one of the finest mill museums in the country. Beautifully located on the border of Lancashire and Yorkshire, Barnoldswick has plenty of cycle routes and designated country walks – it even has a book named after it, full of its own local hill and canal walks.
Colne is a lively town noted for its vibrant music scene. With three theatres and a Hippodrome, a wide selection of entertainment venues and the location for annual events such as the Pendle Beer Festival, The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival and the Colne Grand Prix Cycle Race, it’s no surprise that Colne has been dubbed ‘Lancashire’s capital of Cool,’ by Lancashire Life Magazine. Quirky independent shops, rolling countryside views and a diverse selection of pubs and restaurants all add to the unique charm of this historic town.
Nelson is an ideal place for shopping, entertainment, countryside walks and sporting activities. There’s two beautiful parks complete with tennis courts, bowling green, lake and bandstand. Notice the 12m high weaving shuttle, the centrepiece of the town, created by local sculptor Philippe Handford in recognition of the once bustling industrial economy of the town.
As can be seen, Pendle and the surrounding towns offer a wealth of cultural experiences interspersed with beautiful countryside walks and scenic views.

Local Activities and Past Times
Pendle also has other towns and villages. The charming village of Barrowford, approximately one mile away from Forest of Pendle Leisure Park is conveniently located for the everyday services and facilities needed – GP surgeries, pharmacy, opticians, dentists, village and designer shops. There’s also a selection of recommended eateries, for example, Zio Italian, complemented by a range of country hostelries offering good quality pub food and a friendly service.
Pendle’s rich heritage manifests itself in many ways. The town boasts the last remaining working mill engines as well as the longest canal in Britain and its history is illuminated by a number of famous people – one of whom, George Fox, founded the Quaker movement, inspired by views over Pendle Hill.
However, Pendle is probably best known for the fascinating, yet true story of the Pendle Witches. The 1612 trial of twelve Pendle Hill residents who charged with murder by use of witchcraft became the most famous witch trials in English history – nine of the accused being found guilty and sentenced to hanging on the current site of York racecourse.
