Sabden is a fairly large village with around 1,500 people living here.  It sits at the south of Pendle Hill, in the Forest of Pendle – which is part of the Forest of Bowland.

The road through Sabden leads up to the western flank of Pendle Hill.  At its highest point, the road is covered with old quarries and is now a very popular cycling road.  There is also a Mexican restaurant and a ski slope.
