PENDLE HERITAGE MUSEUM is about the history of local people and the buildings where they lived. Discover the Bannister family, builders of Park Hill in the 1400s and their most famous descendant, Sir Roger Bannister the first person in history to run a mile in under 4 minutes! Find out about George Fox and his vision on Pendle Hill in 1652 which inspired the international Quaker movement. Watch a film about the mysterious Pendle Witches of 1612 and follow the Pendle Witches trail to Lancaster.

From the walled garden you can take a short walk to the medieval CRUCK BARN and then stretch your legs around PARK HILL WOOD which provided firewood and timber for Park Hill in years gone by.
