Darwen by munki-boy


Darwen is a market town located in Lancashire, England. Along with Blackburn, it forms the Borough of Blackburn with Darwen.

Darwen borders the windswept West Pennine Moors with its wonderful landscape and magnificent views.

Darwen is famous for it’s 86ft tall Jubilee Tower, built at the end of the 1800’s to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. It is a bit of a climb to get there, but the views from the top of the tower are worth it. On a clear day you can see the Isle of Man, North Wales, The Furness peninsula and Blackpool Tower.
