The walk is easy to follow and if you take children they will relly enjoy it. However if you are taking a pram it may prove a bit difficult in places. We took three grandchildren (7,5 &3) and they managed it quite easily. The unicorn...More

A nice walk away from Pendle Hill which is where most people head to from Barley. An interesting take on local history. Such a shame that the concessionaire route from Whitehough was lost as a result of rude and inconsiderate visitors; what would have been...More

This trail is well worth the walk up from the picnic site at Barley. It was peaceful when I was there, just some birdsong. The sculptures are very entertaining.

Personally I'd look at this more as a walk with sculptures as opposed to sculptures per say. You're looking at good 30 minutes to get there from the car park with the final part a pretty steep hill - wouldn't recommend buggies while small children...More

No, sorry you can’t. It is not on a bridleway and is on private land.

From the car park in Barley, walk past the Pendle Inn pub. At the end of road take the path ahead...think it's signposted 'Blacko'. It's straight forward from there. Quite a steep climb up.
