I defy anybody to find a finer view in Lancashire. Oh yes and then back to the Inn at Whitewell for Fish Pie!<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

Fish pie - that's what I had as well Boz!

Fabulous for a tenner.

I was there last week. I had a lovely hot pot. Even better, Steve Coogan was there filming.

Hot Pot and Alan Partridge. That takes some beating.

As somebody with the very good fortune to have lived and been brought up in Whitewell there is a better view than from the terrace of the Inn

Stand with your back to the Inn and walk straight up the road opposite up the hill ( it is the back road to Bashall Eaves ), after about 3/4 mile at the very top of the hill turn around and look at the view right through the Trough of Bowland, it is magical, and more impactful when approached from the other direction as it suddenly appears on the landscape

2nd best would be the view from Jeffrey Hill as already mentioned

Another magical view but inaccessible by car / road unless you have a land rover & the farmers permission, is to leave Whitewell towards Dunsop bridge and go up the hill to your left once you ve crossed the river, it is cross country very long and steep, but at the very top is a magical view with no noise not even distant cars can be heard, the view looks back across the valley...

A cracking view but unfortunately just across the border by 1 1/2 miles is the road approaching Wigglesworth, where on a clear day you see the 3 peaks in the distance and Rathmell valley

The view from the top of Blackburn Old Road as you just descend down into Great Harwood towards Pendle Hill is quite possibly one of the best in the World and I have seen a lot of scenes

Also the aspect from the Annel Cross Moor top of Barley aint too shabby:-

Could not agree more Sysagent about Pendle Hill from Gt Harwood. Of all the views I have seen, it is still one of my favourites. Another one for me would be in Sawley, just past the Quaker HQ, just before the hill up to the school, looking down the river towards Pendle.
