THE VENUE The fair will take place in the seventeenth century Park Hill Barn at the Pendle Heritage Centre. Set within the Pendle Forest the centre is part of an ancient textile settlement dating back to the thirteenth century. The vernacular buildings of Pendle Forest have been conserved by the heritage centre and form one of the Heritage Trust for the North West's flagship projects.
MAKE A DAY OF IT See The Centre’s museum, telling the story of the former residents. Relax with a cup of tea or delicious lunch at the centre’s tea room. Enjoy a trip to nearby Gawthorpe Hall to see the Shuttleworth Collection (featured in Selvedge 59). Wander through the 18th century walled garden or follow in the footsteps of the Lancashire Witches on their four mile walk to Lancaster castle.
