Pendleton, Lancashire – High(ish) Water

Pendleton High Waters

Pendleton, on the edge of Pendle Hill near Clitheroe, has didn’t quite flood like the rest of the valley, but the water was pretty high – after lunch on Boxing day we went out for a look around the place – see what damage had happened!

Luckily it didn’t break the banks but the fields were flooded and there was a fair old river pouring down the Lidget, a little lane that goes to Wiswell.

Water from the lidget went down East View to the middle bridge, then over the bridge – creating this little waterfall effect!



Here’s the view up the village, the water had dropped a foot by this stage – but that is definitely as high as I’d ever seen it.


Here are some more shots from around the place
