Bold Venture Park

UK»England»Lancashire»Bold Venture Park

Bold Venture Park: Lying in the valley of Bold Venture brook, it acts as a bridge connecting Darwen town to the countryside of Darwen Tower, Jubilee Tower and beyond.

One historic feature of the park is the war memorial, (listed grade II) close to the main entrance. It was unveiled in 1921 and stands symbolically for the five years of World War I, on five stone steps.

Venture Brook cascades dramatically down through the woods as a series of falls and pools. The water is crossed in all by three stone and ironwork bridges. The lowest of the pools is also the largest and forms an ornamental lake, the centre piece of the park. The lake is planted round with ornamental shrubbery and overlooking the north west bank is an area of formal gardens.
