historic site

A short walk from Bold Venture Park to Jubilee Tower on Darwen Moors. Jubilee Tower was built around 1896 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Jubilee year. More recently the tower lost its dome in high winds, but this was eventually replaced. You can climb the tower and on a clear day you can see for miles in all directions. This is a fairly easy walk in terms of navigation (it is difficult to get lost), but there are a couple of steep sections which can be slippery so these need care. The path surfaces are generally very good. There is one gate to negotiate. Approximate time 1.5 hours.
