Pendle's Hidden Valley- the story so far

  • 27 February 2015 From 7:30pm

It is well known that the Pendle district is full of mysterious goings on like the Devil's Apronful, and preserved treasures like Wycoller. What is less well known is the area’s concealed past. For 30 years or so the Pendle Heritage Archaeology Group has been delving into these 'lost' treasures. Now we have embarked on a new long term project, to explore Pendle's Hidden Valley - from Portfield to Water Meetings. This talk is about our first year of exploration of the Hidden Valley. Already we have discovered tantalising clues hinting at a deeper, more complex history than hitherto expected.
