Pendle Hill

The Quaker conference and retreat center, Pendle Hill, 338 Plush Mill Road, Wallingford, Pennsylvania, is approximately 20 miles west of Philadelphia and next door to Swarthmore College on Main Line Philadelphia. It is a verdant, tranquil place which offers home-like places conducive to introspection, meditative and religious study and for events that include the same, particularly in springtime.

PLEASE NOTE:  Pendle Hill’s Covid policy requires proof of full vaccination and recommends a negative Covid test no more than three days prior to the conference.  You will be asked for this documentation via email in advance of the conference. Masks are required indoors except when dining.

By Car
Pendle Hill is easily accessible by car (take Exit 3 for Media/Swarthmore on route 476).
