Project - Darwen Tower

The tower is listed Grade II.  It is significant not only as a landscape feature, but for its connections with the ‘right to roam’, commemorating the events of the 1896 when access rights over the moors above the industrialised Lancashire towns were claimed for the Townspeople.  The tower in this respect is still in its original function, as a waypoint, a destination, and a place for contemplation with views over the dramatic Pennine landscape.  It also commemorates Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee in 1897.  There are plaques on the outer face of the cloister and this significance is celebrated in the tower’s official name ‘Darwen Jubilee Tower’.

 

Our role: To produce a condition report and design a repair plan for the tower, and developing working methods, suitable for the exposed, remote location.
