Twiston Quaker Trail


This walk visits a farm where Quakers secretly met less than a few miles from where George Fox had his spiritual vision on the summit of Pendle Hill in 1652. Twiston is often overlooked by its more illustrious neighbour, Downham, but is a village with a fascinating history at the eastern edge of old Lancashire. This walk also visits the village’s Quaker burial ground and the site of an ancient roadside cross where the last hanging of a sheep rustler took place. Can we even find the place where he was buried?
