Pendle’s Hidden Valley

800px-Morning_at_Blacko_09 - CopyOur main project at this time is the study of ‘Pendle‚Äôs Hidden Valley’, which runs from Portfield Hillfort, near Whalley in the west, through to Water Meetings, north of Barrowford, in the east, via the villages of Sabden and Newchurch. We are holding regular interpretative field walks on Saturdays and small exploratory excavations to build up an impression of the area. The emphasis is on early history and pre-history though later periods are not overlooked.
