Walk 2: Towers and Turrets

Last Drop Village - Turton Tower - Chapeltown - Edgeworth - Jumbles Reservoir - Last Drop Village

The Last Drop Village complex of hotel, restaurant and shops stands high above Bolton on the edge of the hills and makes an excellent starting point for this walk across a scenic golf course, over one bridge of towers and turrets (one of which can be climbed) and past another, through woods to the attractive village of Chapeltown.

You visit two reservoirs offering extensive views and linked by a delightful wooded gorge with a rippling stream, and the country house ofTurtonTower, medieval and later, is open to the public and stands in pleasant grounds. There is no difficult walking on this route.
