“Walks and tearoom available: Turton tower is a house that has been evolving over the last 500 years. From a stone tower house in the 1400s, to the home of the Tudor Orrell and, later, the Victorian Kay Families, Turton Tower has been altered and adapted to suit the needs and tastes of those who lived here. It is because of these changes that Turton Tower is of national importance and unique in Northwest England. Today it still captures the spirit of those ages and displays some of the finest paintings and furniture in the region. Turton Tower is owned and run by Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council.”

The area is rich with history, especially the cotton industry in and around Manchester and Bolton. ”
