Coordinates: 53°51′50″N 2°18′32″W / 53.864°N 2.309°W / 53.864; -2.309 Pendle Water is a minor river in Lancashire.

Rising on Pendle Hill, Pendle Water cuts a deep valley between Barley Moor and Spence Hill, where it feeds the two Ogden Reservoirs, before making its way eastward through Roughlee, collecting Blacko Water, draining the valley near Wheathead, at Water Meetings - 1 mile west of Blacko, then moving south by Higherford and Barrowford, where it is joined by Colne Water.

Pendle Water subsequently runs by the Lomeshaye Industrial Estate west of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to its confluence with the River Calder in Reedley Hallows northwest of Burnley.

The water was once supplier to Burnley Water Treament Works which is situated on Wood End Lane.
