Looking over Lower Black Moss Reservoir near the village of Barley. The reservoir is sometimes used to supply the town of Nelson. In the background is Pendle Hill which is a dominant feature in this part of East Lancashire. Pendle is famous for its association with the Pendle Witches whose trial led to the execution of ten witches at Gallows Hill, Lancaster on 20th August 1612. The founder of the Quaker movement George Fox held a great meeting on top of Pendle Hill, and described it in 1652 as follows - "as we travelled we came near to a very great hill, called Pendle Hill, and I was moved by the Lord to go to the top of it, which I did with difficulty, it was so very steep and high. When I was come to the top, I saw the sea bordering upon Lancashire". More pictures of Barley by David Swann...
