More about this scene

Turton Tower lies four miles south of Darwen, and four miles north-east of Bolton. The villages of Turton and Turton Bottoms are next to the Tower. Turton Tower is basically two buildings, a pele tower dating from the 1100s, modernised around 1450, and a farm house or family hall, added in the late 14th century. In 1930 the hall was sold to the local authorities, and Turton Tower is now open to the public; it is well worth a visit.
