Pendle hill is 557 metres above sea level situated in N E Lancashire, famous for its links with witches and witch craft ever since the Pendle witch trials of 1612 because all the accused lived in the villages surrounding Pendle hill. The name Pendle hill comes from three different languages, Pennul or Penhul, is from the Cumbric pen and the Old English hyll, both of which mean "hill"; when the meaning of this was lost, the word Hill was again appended.
Pendle hill is of great significance to the Quakers because George Fox having had a vision on the top of Pendle hill went on to start the Quaker movement.
Today Pendle hill is more likely to be used by keen walkers, hang gliders and paragliders than for witch craft.
