Hoghton Tower - James I visit in 1617




The old driveway to the tower began at Riley Green.  It started at Green Lane running down the side of the Royal Oak, through Green Farm and continued up to the Tower.  


The one which we now see coming from the War Memorial on the A675 main Blackburn to Preston road was not opened until 1901, when Sir Cuthbert, the late baronet, came of age.
