Summerhouse east of Turton Tower, Chapeltown Road (off), North Turton - Blackburn with Darwen (UA)

Summerhouse or hunting lodge associated with nearby country house known as Turton Tower. The main house is managed by the Local Authority as a museum but the summerhouse is in separate private ownership. Some repair work carried out in 2015 but the structure lacks an internal first floor and requires further maintenance works to the roof and stonework to prevent further decline.
