Barley lies under the shadow of Pendle Hill and there is no denying that it is the big draw for walkers in the area. There are plenty of other footpaths however, which offer excellent walks with good views of the big hill. This is one of them, good in its own right but also useful for a shorter day out or in weather which might keep you off the felltops. With the exception of one stretch, the going is fairly easy but the signposting is variable, excellent in some parts, poor in others. The Cabin in the Visitor Centre is a very welcoming place, keen for your custom. There is a tea room and two pubs too.

Just been on this walk today. Barley is a lovely little village and the walk was a really good walk. Pendle Hill looks a good challenge if you fancy it. All in all a pleasant day

If you want to extend this walk slightly you can go straight up the path at WM10 and through the gate and follow the stone steps (plenty of them!) up Pendle Hill. At the summit follow the ridge and descend again on the obvious path. At the bottom go through the gate you came in and bear right and then you are between WM9 and WM10 on the guide. We did this on 01/05 and as usual the views from Pendle Hill were stunning.

Did the walk today (02/05/2012). Excellent directions. Just a minor point. The photo for waymark 8 shows a tree near the footpath sign. This tree has been cut down. Keep to the left of the two trees in the field and you will see the stile as you come to the brow of a dip.
