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.


Learn about:

  • The history of Park Hill
  • The Bannister family
  • The Pendle Witches
  • George Fox, whose vision on nearby Pendle Hill inspired the international Quaker movement.
  • The vernacular buildings of Pendle Forest and how they have been conserved by the heritage centre

Please note we have no power - one of the local sub stations is down. We are open, but can only take cash payments. We have no ice creams, hot drinks or toasties, but everything else is available. All food will be served from the kitchen, as luckily for us, our ovens are gas! Sorry for any inconvenience. The shop is open, but the museum is closed
We will update you when normal service resumes.
