As for the question we keep being asked about witches performing ceremonies on Pendle Hill around Halloween, here's what a couple of well respected witches in the area have to say...

"Its practically not safe to go out that night!  The lanes round Pendle are stiff with traffic.  Its traditional to go wild on Pendle Hill that night, but of late years the police wont let anyone stop the car around Pendle, so you have to get out early and walk I suppose.  The pubs and stuff near the hill all shut.  Even in town it gets riotous I hear."

"...about Halloween for reasons of personal safety I wouldn't want to be on the hill.  I'm not a person who likes crowds or people out of control on drugs.  For a self respecting witch, Halloween is Samhain, the festival of the dead.  Same thing really.  The best Samhains have been the ones on [name withheld]'s land.  We put pictures of dead friends and relatives on the altar and bring them into the festivities."
