  • Visited on a circular walk from the nearby Royal Arms at Ryal Fold in 1991. The adjacent Darwen Tower, which is a well known landmark in this part of Lancashire, was built in 1898 by public subscription, to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee and also a local battle for access to the moorlands hereabouts. In the 1870's, the Lord of the Manor of Darwen, Reverend William Duckworth, blocked ancient rights of access to the moors, which he wanted to use exclusively for shooting game. This brought him into conflict with most of the local people, but especially a local mine owner William Ashton, who used the moorland paths to deliver his coal. This led to a series of tense stand-offs between Ashton and his employees and Duckworth's gamekeepers, and a long court battle, which Duckworth ultimately lost. The Tower is 85 feet tall, and can be climbed via an internal staircase. It was recently reopened after a renovation, to commemorate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
