Pendle Heritage Centre

Summer walled garden (1)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

*We are sorry to have to take the unusual step of cancelling the talk on Roman Roads this evening. *

*An attempt has been made to replace this with something of a similar,nature, however despite trying two universities and many other places nothing has turned up and rather than disappoint people who are particularly expecting this subject we thought it better to cancel. *

*Mike may be able to come at a future date. *

*Our next meeting which is the AGM is on Thursday 17th May. This will be followed by a talk on Aspects of Pendle by Andrea Smith. There will be a free light supper to follow. *

*Yours sincerely *

*Gayle Wray*

Enjoyable evening last night at the Pendle Heritage Centre 40th Anniversary Fundraising dinner - raising funds for the exciting plans they have for the next few years.

Well done to everyone who organised the event. I am delighted that the auction raised over £800 - more down to the fantastic lots than my skills as an auctioneer!

A special mention for the chocolate orange indulgence: a terrific desert. Peter, Paul and their team did an incredible job in such a tight space!

Great venue becomes outstanding when you add matching staff, congratulations from Arthur Padgett ltd

What a fabulous night! Many congrats to the team! Many thanks to the generosity of Michael Bannister, who kept boosting the prizes he donated for the auction!
