Books on Trawden

Trawden is a small community in a large area of land on the Eastern edge of Pendle.  It was one of the earliest places to produce coal and had good quality stone quarries.  At the top of the village is the parish church of St Mary's which opened in 1846.  It was named St Mary's in memory of Mary Foulds of Trawden Hall (built in 1540), who died in 1817.  Now Trawden is largely a residential area with some farming and one mill - Hollin Hall Mill, which makes and sells threads to the textile industry and the public.   Just to the left of the picture above is a Quaker burial ground dating back to 1686.  Close by is the hamlet of Winewall, often confused by all and sundry (including the UK post office!) to be the same as Trawden.

Etymology of Trawden

The name "Trawden" means low valley.
