Winter view of Pendle Hill.

Winter view of Pendle Hill.
In 1652, during the early years of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), their founder George Fox claimed to have had a vision on top of Pendle Hill.

"As we travelled, we came near a very great hill, called Pendle Hill, and I was moved of the Lord to go up to the top of it; which I did with difficulty, it was so very steep and high. When I was come to the top, I saw the sea bordering upon Lancashire. From the top of this hill the Lord let me see in what places he had a great people to be gathered. As I went down, I found a spring of water in the side of the hill, with which I refreshed myself, having eaten or drunk but little for several days before."
(George Fox: An Autobiography, Chapter 6)

Today Pendle remains strongly linked to the Quakers, giving its name to one of their centres for religious and spiritual study and contemplation in the United States.

Superb.

The Quakers were incredible for their foresight. The Covenants they wrote protected much of the land and also gifted much to education.

Hi Peter....yes, the events leading up to the "Pendle witch" trials of 1612 all took place in the villages & towns around Pendle Hill (but not on the hill itself, contrary to popular opinion). More information at the links below.
