Darwen is another local cotton town that once had many mills and chimneys. A few survive today including the exotic looking India Mill chimney.
The lofty and historic Jubilee Tower or just Darwen Tower as it is often known today literally ‘towers’ over the town of Darwen and is one of the best-known landmarks in the area. Surrounded by expansive moorland and views out to see and as far as mighty Ingleborough on clear days.
There are a good number of walks and places to visit in the area although near to the now derelict Sunnyhurst Hey Reservoir the footpaths have been closed and/or diverted a lot of late, leading to disrupted walks and also a few chances to explore different routes.
There are also a few local parks with interesting features.
