Turton Tower is a manor house in Chapeltown in North Turton, Borough of Blackburn with Darwen, Lancashire, England. It is a scheduled ancient monument and a grade I listed building.
It was built in the late Middle Ages as a two-storey stone pele tower which was altered and enlarged mainly in late 16th century. It is built on high ground 600 feet above sea level about four miles north of Bolton. William Camden described it as being built "amongst precipices and wastes." A north wing and additions were made during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I and alterations were made during the early years of Queen Victoria.

  • Wonderful historic house, worth a look around when it's open. Check dates and times in advance. Take a walk around the woodlands, enjoy the squirrels and the stunning outdoors. Great cafe, check opening times. Good carpark. Lovely day out for those who like a quiet walk and/or a visit to the Tower.
  • This place is beautiful. Volunteers enthusiastically bring history to life. Real roundhead armour from the civil war beautiful old Tudor beams and tapestries... furniture of the era on loan from the V&A amazing original beams and arts and craft decor. Wow.
