The Trough of Bowland

Marshaw, Lancashire, England


The Trough of Bowland is a valley and high pass in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lancashire, England. The pass, reaching 968 ft above sea level at the head of the valley, links to Wyresdale, dividing the upland core of Bowland into two main blocks. In 1612, ten people were accused of witchcraft and hanged. Allegedly, their journey from nearby Pendle Hill to their imprisonment at Lancaster Castle passed along parts of this route.
