Gandhi Up North


How did the celebrated spiritual leader of India end up spending the night in a farmhouse in the old West Riding of Yorkshire? This walk links the villages of Grindleton and West Bradford and tells the intriguing tale of Mahatma Gandhi’s visit to the North of England in 1931. We follow field paths and explore riverside and woodland to view Heys Farm, the former workers’ guest house where Gandhi stayed, at the invitation of Darwen mill owner, Percy Davies. There are good views of Pendle Hill throughout the walk.
