‘No go’ on Pendle Hill again for Hallowe’en revellers
12:13pm Tuesday 18th October 2011 in Sabden
HALLOWE'EN revellers are again being asked not to head for Pendle Hill.
Pendle Hill had become a hotspot at Halloween, attracting thousands of visitors from across Lancashire.
But a controversial ban was introduced in 2008 due to complaints over drinking, fireworks and anti-social behaviour.
On October 31, Pendle Hill will be closed from 5pm until 3am to all traffic travelling from Sabden.
All vehicles entering the village will be asked to leave via alternative routes either towards Padiham or Whalley.
Access to the Wellsprings Inn at the Nick o’ Pendle will be by ticket only.
There will be ‘no waiting’ cones on both sides of Clitheroe Road from its junction with Whalley Road, Sabden, over Pendle Hill to the Pendleton turn-off.
Contractors will remove any fairground rides, mobile catering units or vehicles parked in the no-waiting area.
Safety cones will also be placed down the centre of the road forming two lanes, one for pedestrians and one for cars travelling from the A59.
Residents of Clitheroe Road, Sabden, will receive leaflets advising them of the parking restrictions.
The measures are backed by Sabden Parish Council.
