Pendle Walking Festival - The Pendle Way - Stages 1 - 4


This is Pendle's Flagship walk which covers a circuit of 45 miles and takes place over 4 days of the Pendle Walking Festival. The walk takes in stunning scenery in a landscape which has been shaped by agriculture and the beginnings of the industrial revolution. Your achievement in completing the full walk will be recognised with the award of our prestigious Pendle Way certificates which are presented on the last day of the walk.

We charge for this walk because for each days walking we provide coach travel at the end or the beginning of the day to take you back to the start.

Priority is given for people who wish to book a place to complete the whole walk. But places for joining the Pendle Way for a single day will be made available one week before the start of the festival, depending on availability.

The details for each days walking are given below.
