Launch for new Pendle tourist guide
3:15pm Thursday 14th March 2013 in News
THE new Discover Pendle Visitor Guide, to be rolled out across the UK, is launched today at Thorn- ton Hall Farm, near Barnoldswick.
Coun Paul White, who leads on tourism for Pendle, said: “Our beautiful and peaceful corner of Lancashire is actually big business for tourism and is worth over £80million to the local economy. You can find out about what Pendle has to offer in our new 32-page guide. This year our cover story is the amazing new Pendle Sculpture Trail, inspired by the true story of the Pendle Witches of 1612.”
Tourism officer Mike Williams said: “This year we’ve tried to personalise some of the attractions. We have the Duffeys, a family from Saltburn, and their account of visiting the area, and Norman Mitchell, a leader at our Walking Festival, talks about walks in Pendle.”
The free guides are available at the Discover Pendle centre at Boundary Mill or Pendle Heritage Centre.
