Be prepared for the ultimate Pendle Hill Experience with John Blackburn. 

Join me John Blackburn for a Pendle Hill Experience that will intrigue and excite you because not only are you going up to the site of Malkin Tower on Pendle Hill, which was the home of Elizabeth Southern and the alleged meeting place of the Pendle witches coven, I will also be taking you to a second location of the evening! This is a secret location which I have only investigated once before in Pendle which was also mentioned in the Pendle witch trials.

To get you in the right frame of mind I will be conducting a development workshop in order to development your senses for this dark intimidating location where you will be given the opportunity to use you psychic senses to unravel the mysteries of this secret location. The development workshop will be carried out at the Swan and Royal Hotel in Clitheroe.  

We have organised an evening meal on Saturday night which is optional and at you own cost. Accommodation is also available should you chose to sleep over in this very haunted location, again at you own cost. If you want to book accommodation please click on this link to the Swan and Royal Hotel website where you can obtain a contact number. http://www.swanandroyal.co.uk/wp/ 

The history of the Pendle Witches

Probably the most famous of all trials was in the autumn of 1612 when twenty persons, of whom sixteen were women, accused for witchcraft.  King James I had a strong belief in the existence of witchcraft, therefore an act was passed imposing the death penalty “for making a covenant with an evil spirit, using a corpse for magic, hurting life or limb, procuring love, or injuring cattle by means of charms.”  At the end of the three day Assize a total 10 people were found guilty of witchcraft and were hanged on a moor above Lancaster Town. They were: Anne Whittle, Ann Redfearn, Elizabeth Device, Alice Nutter, Alison Device, James Device, Katherine Hewitt, Jane Bulcock, John Bulcock and Isobel Robey.  Five of the accused were tried at Lancaster Castle.
