Blacko: the village and tower.

Blacko: the village and tower.
Overlooking the village is Stansfield Tower (a.k.a. Blacko Tower), which was built around 1890. A local grocer, Jonathan Stansfield, built this circular rough stone tower to provide himself with a view over Ribblesdale from the top but the height fell somewhat short. A Bronze Age axe believed to be 3,500 years old was found near the tower in 1952.
