Welcome to North Turton

Information Site

We are made up of three villages – Edgworth, Chapeltown and Belmont


North Turton is an area made up of small villages and hamlets.  It is part of the area formerly known as “Turton UDC” (Turton Urban District Council).  Historically, Turton was the largest of the townships in the ancient parish of Bolton-le-Moors, before being split into two separate areas on the 1st of April 1974, which then became North Turton and South Turton.

Today, the three villages that make up North Turton are Edgworth, Chapeltown and Belmont.  Additionally, small hamlets in the area are made up of Entwistle, Quarlton, Round Barn, Turton Bottoms and Whittlestone Head.

The area is situated 6½ miles to the north of the busy town of Bolton.  Interestingly, the economy of North Turton is based mainly on agriculture, along with many small self-employed businesses.

Conveniently, the area is serviced by a busy commuter railway line from Blackburn to Manchester, but unfortunately with only one railway station open (Entwistle) although only at certain times in the day.


Edgworth in North Turton is renowned to walkers as it is very picturesque. Two large reservoirs, the Wayoh Reservoir, and the Turton and Entwistle Reservoir are located north-east of the village, and the Jumbles Reservoir is near Turton Bottoms. They supply water to the Bolton area.


Chapeltown is a village of the civil parish of North Turton, in the Blackburn with Darwen unitary authority, in the north west of England. It is situated on the B6391 and lies on southern slopes of the West Pennine Moors. The village was once the historic centre of the old Turton Urban District.


Belmont is a village in Lancashire, England. It is close to Darwen. It has around 500 inhabitants and lies within the civil parish of North Turton in the unitary authority area of Blackburn with Darwen.
