Pagan Eye: Pendle Hill in the snow

We might be approaching the Summer Solstice, but I couldn't resist posting this lovely picture of snowy Pendle Hill, in Lancashire, taken during the winter. It is an area famous for its historic witch trials, which took place in 1612. Ten men and women were hanged after being found guilty of murdering 17 people by witchcraft in and around the Forest of Pendle.

The photo above was sent to me last week by Julian Jordan, who does the PR for the annual Pendle Pub Walk, after I asked him for a press release about the event and about a Pendle-brewed beer recently named Witch Way Now in a competition.

He sent me a picture of Bernie the competition winner holding a pint of
Moorhouses and with a Witch Way Now? pump clip and said: "Also, as I'm well disposed toward my pagan friends, I've attached a pic of Pendle Hill taken by my Dad during the winter."

I like anyone who is well disposed towards pagans - and I also think the photo is great so I am using it for my Pagan Eye post this week.

On each of my Pagan Eye posts, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it.

If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.

The Pendle Pub Walk is taking place this weekend on 6 June. For more details visit:
