The Pendle Way long distance footpath in the South Pennines of England encircles the borough of Pendle. It was officially opened in 1987. Beginning at Pendle Heritage Centre in Barrowford the route follows riverside and moorland paths for around 7 miles to reach Barnoldswick. From Barnoldswick the route is followed partly alongside the Leeds and Liverpool Canal via Thornton-in-Craven to Earby. From Earby the route continues on paths, tracks, lanes and across agricultural countryside via Kelbrook to Laneshawbridge. From Laneshawbridge the path proceeds via Wycoller and along an old packhorse route over the moors above Trawden to the Coldwell Inn. From there the path continues through farmland to Reedley and then via Higham to Newchurch. The next section of 5 miles includes the ascent of Pendle Hill and descent to Barley followed by a countryside walk back to Barrowford.
