In and around Laneshawbridge
Laneshawbridge is ideally placed for walking on The Pendle Way.
The Pendle Way is a 45 mile circular footpath encompassing many places of interest within the borough. Its attractions include historical associations with the seventeenth century Pendle Witches and connections with the Brontës, the hamlet of Wycoller is said to have inspired the novels Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre by the Brontë sisters (Emily Brontë and Charlotte Brontë). There are also examples of stonebuilt villages in the traditional style of East Lancashire and the South Pennines, relics of the weaving and lead mining industry, along with limestone meadows and millstone grit moorland all culminating in the ascent of Pendle Hill, l557 metres (1,827 ft) in height.
The Pendle Way can be broken down into individual sections with section 4 starting at The Emmott Arms.
West of the Pennines, The Bronte Way offers great off-road cycling as it skirts the high ground of Boulsworth Hill and the former royal hunting area of the Forest of Trawden.
