Artist's Description

The octagonal Jubilee Tower (sometimes called Darwen Tower) at grid reference SD678215 on Beacon Hill overlooking the town of Darwen in Lancashire, England, UK, was completed in 1898 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and also to celebrate the victory of the local people for the right to access the moor. It was opened to the public on 22 September 1898.
At 85 feet (25.9 m) in height, walkers can climb to the top via the internal staircase to admire the views of North Yorkshire, Morecambe Bay, Blackpool Tower, Cumbria, the Isle of Man, North Wales, Derbyshire elsewhere in Lancashire, and surrounding moorland.
