Pendle Hill has made it on to a national list of spooky places to visit.

The ghoulish site, known for its connections to the Pendle witches and Lancashire Witch Trials of 1612, appears at number six on the list of “12 Real Life Haunted Locations You’re Far Too Scared To Visit,” compiled by entertainment website

Twelve people, 10 of them from Pendle, were tried in Lancaster accused of witchcraft after people began dying of mysterious illnesses, milk turned sour, and cattle began falling ill.

Ten were found guilty and hanged, with villages around Pendle said to be haunted by the ghosts of those who died.

Also appearing on the list are Drakelow Tunnels in Kidderminster, Highgate Cemetery in London, Borley Rectory in Essex, Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, the Ancient Ram Inn in Gloucestershire, Aldgate Station, London, Llancaiach Fawr Manor, Caerphilly, Woodchester Mansion in Gloucestershire, Edinburgh Castle, Blickling Hall, Norfolk, and Pluckley in Kent.
