Pendleton, Lancashire
Coordinates: 53°51′04″N 2°22′16″W / 53.851°N 2.371°W
Pendleton is a small village and civil parish in Ribble Valley, within the county of Lancashire, England. It is close to the towns of Whalley and Clitheroe. The village used to be a secluded village two miles from the A59, Liverpool to York main road, on the north west side of Pendle Hill at the bottom of the Nick o' Pendle. The village is now within easy access of the re-routed A59 Clitheroe By-Pass. The village has a number of tourist attractions, not least an old coaching inn, The Swan With Two Necks.
Pendleton also has an interesting history related to traditional folk customs and the witchcraft persecutions. A book was written on this subject entitled "The Pendle Witches" by William Harrison Ainsworth, published 1849. Doreen McGlashan, born Doreen Wilson, a Pendleton native (now living in Australia & aged 92) states that as a child in the 1920s there was frequent talk of witches & witchcraft in the village, and that she & her siblings were kept indoors on certain Saturdays because of "witches Sabbaths" happening in the town on those days. She also recounts large May Day celebrations in her youth which included dancing around a May Pole, and states that as a girl she specifically remembers "pretty girls" often being suspected of witchcraft by the villagers. Most likely all such folk beliefs & witchcraft stories have by now been forgotten or lost by the residents of Pendleton, except perhaps by people who possess family lore dating back to the early 20th Century.
