Pendle Way On A Midsummers Night
Starting from the Pendle Heritage Centre in Barrowford at 8pm at night, you will take a short hop through Barley, before climbing Pendle to catch the Sunset atop of the mighty Hill.
From there you'll wind your way through the valleys and nightime of the Pendle valleys with your headtorch guiding the way!
At approximately 24miles, you'll have a choice to make - cut short and make for the finish line at 30miles or head on into the night for the full 45miles. But don't fret, you don't need to decide which until the night (or is it morning??)
Either way, there'll be a hearty warm welcome back at the finish line and plenty to replenish.
This fresh take on the Pendle Way is great for nightime navigation practice, and a fabulous time out on the trails as part of a group.
All from the gorgeous Pendle Heritage Centre Barn, Barrowford, BB9 6JQ.
Parking is available close by to the Heritage Centre.
