Summit of Weets Hill
|Elevation||397 m (1,302 ft)|
|Parent peak||Pendle Hill|
|Topo map||OS Landranger 103|
The hill is in the traditional county of Yorkshire, but following local government reorganisation in 1974 it falls within Lancashire for administrative purposes.
Stock Beck originates from the north face of the summit. To the west of the summit lies Gisburn Old Road which is surfaced until it reaches Weets House, from there onwards it is a track over the shoulder of Weets. This road originally ran from Colne to Gisburn but was replaced by the road from Blacko to Gisburn (turnpike) in the 19th century. Weets House was called “Stoops House” on maps until the later part of the 20th century (Stoops were guide posts at junctions on roads crossing open moorland).
