Stansfield Tower, aka Blacko Tower

  Built around 1890 by a local grocer, Jonathan Stansfield.  He thought he would be able to see into Ribblesdale from the top, but was proved wrong.  He shrugged off the disappointment saying, "I've never drunk nor smoked in my life so am making this as my hobby."  The other legend says that he was trying to see his girlfriend in Gisburn ;-)
