Twiston Quaker Walk


This walk explores the early history of the Quakers close to where George Fox first had his vision of a new religion on Pendle Hill in 1652. The walk visits the Twiston farm where Quakers first met in secret as well as the nearby Sepulchre Burial Ground. An interesting Winston Churchill connection to the village of Twiston is also revealed. The walk passes through a dramatic landscape of limestone, wooded cloughs and old Pendle farmsteads.
