This famous lump in East Lancashire gets it first full colour coffee table book by local landscape photographer Alastair Lee. Including many new large format panoramic works by Lee. The writing covers the varied and eventful history to pass under the gaze of the hill from the famous Pendle witches and the industrial revolution, to the hill becoming a popular recreational area for today's local community. The hill is shown in all seasons and every conceivable atmospheric condition where Lee's passion for Pendle Hill shines through each page of the book.
The book measures 330mm X 210mm and is just the right size to send as a large letter; the perfect gift to send to friends and family that have moved away from the area.

'They're not just pretty pictures but images that speak of a fundamental appreciation of the hills as a refuge from the world and a visionary vantage point, a unique wild character in the landscapes of our imagination. Our relationships with place are particular, personal and intimate. Lee's climbing colleagues in countries with vast mountain ranges may not understand the British fondness for enigmatic lumps and nub-ends of hills sticking out of the countryside, but we have always loved them.'
