Pendle Sculpture trail offers something for all the family. a walk through soughing tree, pine needles soft underfoot,the unexpected art installations capturing the imagination and bringing nature even closer and 1612 Witches Trial brought vivdily and immediately to life. all in the great English outdoors.
