Here is the enigma that is Barley hill, a hill that upon arrival at the lovely village of Barley one simply cannot miss, yet it is hardly ever photographed! A Google search on “Barley Hill” results in many, many photographs of …Pendle Hill, its’ more illustrious and infamous neighbour . ¬†Barley hill is somewhat mound-shaped. It’s a perfect little sheep-clad example of the type of hills one’s mind ¬†conjures up images of when thinking of walks in the Mendips, the Cotswolds or other lower altitude areas of England. Most of the hill is not C.R.O.W. accessible but as hardly anyone ever recants their tales of walks over this sub 1,000′ lump that maybe down to the fact that nobody has bothered whatever human inhabitants reside atop the hill.
