Observation tower, 1897. Rock-faced sandstone. Late medieval style:
octagonal tower 86ft. high, incorporating a spiral staircase to
observation decks and surrounded at the base by a buttressed open
arcade carrying a low-level deck. Base has stone shield over each arch,
a band above these, and a ramped parapet to the deck. Tower has
Tudor-arched doorway to deck on west side, lancet stairlights, bracketed
cornice, embattled parapet with cross-shaped arrowslits at the angles,

was built when, after a protracted legal dispute with the lord of the manor
and the owner of shooting rights, Darwen Moor became public property.
