The Jubilee Tower that sits on the top of Darwen Hill was completed in 1898 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. It was also the year that Darwen Moor was opened to the public and it has become a popular walking destination ever since.
The top of the 85 foot tower is also accessible and one can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding Lancashire countryside, and it is said that you can see as far as North Yorkshire and the Isle of Man on a clear day.
You can also explore the nearby Sunnyhurst Woods and Roddlesworth for more examples of the West Pennine countryside.
