Grants Tower Restoration Group (petition to restore Grants Tower Ramsbottom) sign now

Grants Tower was erected above Ramsbottom in the area known as Top o'th Hoof farm in 1828 to commemorate the Grants Brothers William and Daniel who were instrumental in building much of Ramsbottom as we know it today and are thought to have been the inspiration for Dickens 'Cheeryble Brothers'.
The Tower is said to have built in the spot where the Grants had their first sight of Ramsbottom when they arrived here from Scotland around 1783.

In earlier years, the tower was a well visited site with a cafe as well as rides and swings for the children. It was as famous a landmark as Peel Tower on the oposite side of the valley.

Unfortunately the tower was left derelict and fell into ruin which led to its collapse on September 21st 1944 as reported in The Bury Times.

We (The Grants Tower Restoration Group) believe that this important piece of Ramsbottoms history deserves to be restored to its former glory.

In doing this we will be honouring our heritage and may bring new visitors to Ramsbottom.

We are unable to do this without the full support of the people of Ramsbottom. Only you can help us rebuild our history. We need your support.
