Turton must have once been a wide area as Turton Moor is some distance from Turton Tower, but today it seems intersected by other areas and is not represented by a “big name” on the OS maps.

Some of the best looking reservoirs in the area are here, historic monuments, wide open moorland vistas and at least a couple of prehistoric monuments.
