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.

Museum

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
