4/1 Darwen Jubilee Tower 17-4-1972 - II

Observation tower, 1897. Rock-faced sandstone. Late medieval style: octagonal tower 86ft. high, incorporating a spiral staircase to observation decks and surrounded at the base by a buttressed open arcade carrying a low-level deck. Base has stone shield over each arch, a band above these, and a ramped parapet to the deck. Tower has Tudor-arched doorway to deck on west side, lancet stairlights, bracketed cornice, embattled parapet with cross-shaped arrowslits at the angles, and is surmounted by a lantern with domed cap and weathervane. Tower was built when, after a protracted legal dispute with the lord of the manor and the owner of shooting rights, Darwen Moor became public property.
