This morning we embark on a spellbinding guided tour to discover the chilling story of the Pendle Witches, the most famous witch trials in English history. The Pendle Witch Experience brings their history to life as we retrace their steps throughout this wild and unspoilt area which has changed little in 400 years. This afternoon we enjoy a guided tour Samlesbury Hall one of the most stunning stately homes of Lancashire. This fabulous half-timbered black and white medieval house, built in 1325 as a family home, is really brought to life by our guide.
