Where is Pendle Hill?

I suppose living in another country doesn't prevent me from joining you if I'm a witch? grin

bikergran Mon 31-Oct-11 16:40:16

Butternut it is in Lancashire is where all the witches used to gather..if you google it you find out more (but be carefull, it may cast a spell) grin people actualy used to believe certain people were witches!

bikergran Mon 31-Oct-11 16:41:09

Where are you? im sure with the wind behind you you wil be able to make it..although its all uphill!!

Just going to the shed to collect my broomstick. From Cheshire it's not more than about half an hour as the crow - sorry, the witch - flies. Grans' coven, here I come.

Annobel Mon 31-Oct-11 16:53:03

BTW, Biker - are your inflatable friends coming with you? Missed out on meeting them last time. Sure they must be up to some witchcraft.

my mother used to live by Pendle hill she remembers rolling Easter eggs down it.

Butternut Mon 31-Oct-11 17:33:15

Thanks bikergran.

I'm in France, but a quick hop across the channel shouldn't present a problem!

It's All Saints day here tomorrow, so if I'm too witchery tonight I'll be looked after tomorrow. grin

bikergran Mon 31-Oct-11 17:50:36

ohh Annobel im sorry to say my inflatable friends are no more!! one floated out to sea at Blackpool and the other somehow got "punctured" (not sure if a little doggy got hold of him) !!! ouch!! lol.....

I will join you. You will not see me. You will feel a presence.

Even if you are not on Pendle Hill, you will feel a cold draught.

.......... ignore the screams.

ghostofjangly Mon 31-Oct-11 18:45:22

Where there is Coronation Street. And where there is East Enders. There shall I be

There is no hiding place..............

ghostofjangly Mon 31-Oct-11 18:46:36

And if you watch that flipping dancing thing, I will be there too. (unless it's already been on)
