Pendle Hill standing at 1831ft dominates our local landscape here in east Lancashire. Looking north west from our towns in Pendleside the unmistakable shape of the hill is so easy recognised. Two weeks ago on the 18th August it was exactly 400 years to the day that the famous Witches of Pendle were tried and executed at Lancaster Castle. To mark this event in Pendle's history a sponsored Pendle Witch Walk was organised for the Pendleside Hospice also an attempt to set a world record in the Guiness Book Of Records for the highest number of witches to assemble in a single gathering, the total count just a few short of 500.The event should raise at least £30,000.
My involvement was to record the day with other members of the Burnley Film Makers in High-Definition, later after editing it will be sold and all proceeds will go to the Pendleside Hospice. My filming location was on the top of Pendle Hill and the misty scenes on the summit all added to the atmosphere as the ghostly figures appeared out of the mist.
Because of the filming I only shot a couple of photos on the summit. Today we had a quick walk up and along the top of Pendle on a very windy but clearer day.
Just a few shots of today's walk ( We must have climbed this hill dozens of times throughout the years)
