Pendle Heritage Centre
Visit the Heritage Centre to enjoy Pendle Hill and the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You will find a Tea Room overlooking a restored Eighteenth Century Walled Garden – always a lovely place to relax with a home-cooked lunch, whatever the weather. The Pendle Art Gallery has jewellery, silk scarves, ceramics and prints by local artists and the Parlour Shop is a great place to find that perfect gift, book or greeting card. The centre also has a Museum on Pendle life, focusing on life in the 1600s, the Pendle Witches, George Fox and the Quakers and the Bannister family.
