A circular walk, which initially sets off past Longlands Wood and the historic Worsaw End before passing up Burst Clough onto Worston Moor. The walk then heads over the top of Pendle Hill and on to the trig point at its summit, before descending down Downham Moor and back in to Downham. As soon as height is gained there are wonderful panoramic views of the surrounding Ribble Valley and beyond. From the top of Pendle, on a clear day the Lakeland fells and the Yorkshire Three peaks are all visible. Whilst Pendle Hill is synonymous with the Pendle Witches (the 400th anniversary of their hanging was in 2012), it is enjoyed by many thousands of people each year.
