Lancashire has got a fascinating haunted past, which makes it a great place to visit throughout the year, not just for Halloween. Lancashire is said to be one of the most haunted county in the UK. Take a look through if you dare!
The story of the Lancashire witches is one that still evokes intrigue and mystery over 400 years later, aided by the striking natural beauty and often shadowy presence of Pendle Hill. Climb to the top for stunning views or take a stroll through the nearby Pendle Sculpture Trail which includes tributes to the accused witches.
Whilst most of us have heard of the Lancashire witch trials of 1612 but did you know that several ‘Samlesbury witches’ were tried within this trial and found to be innocent. To find out more head to Samlesbury Hall.
Built in 1325 Samlesbury Hall is steeped in fascinating history. With the turbulent history of catholic families, the haunting of Lady Dorothy Southworth (and others), a captivating insight into life from the early 14th to the early 20th Century is all waiting to be discovered.
Or how about scaring yourself silly? Scare attractions such as Farmaggedon near Ormskirk and Scare Kingdom Scream Park - Seven Deadly Sins near Blackburn guarantee to terrify and entertain you in equal measures throughout October and early November. Only for the very brave (or foolish).
