A walking route from Pendle to Lancaster is the project's legacy
Green Close is working with a number of regional partners to establish a walking route fom Pendle to Lancaster, incorporating the brick waymarkers, Poet Laureate's composition and other features.
Lancashire Witches Walks 2013
Join the series of walks in 2013 covering the newly established 'Lancashire Witches Walk' from Pendle to Lancaster. Led by experienced Lancashire County Council environmentalists, and joined by Green Close artists/ historians on differing days.
Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, has now completed work on her poem, The Lancashire Witches, inspired by the witches' history, which will be distributed along the walking route for ramblers to read in full along the way.
The route from where the witches lived near Pendle Hill to the place of their trial and execution in Lancaster is approximately 50 miles across the beautiful Trough of Bowland, taking in some breath-taking scenery.
A official walking route over such a varied amount of terrain means lots of considerations, such as public rights of way, map-making, erosion and maintenance. Find out more about who and what is involved.
The "tercet" waymarkers
Sculptor, Stephen Raw, has been commissioned to create ten "tercet" waymarkers, each inscribed with one stanza of Carol Ann Duffy's poem, 'Lancashire Witches'.
