TURTON, an urban district in the Westhoughton parliamentary division of Lancashire, England, 4 m. N. of Bolton, on the Lancashire & Yorkshire railway. Pop. (1901), 12,355. Its modern growth is the result of the development of the cotton trade in its various branches; and there are large stone quarries in the vicinity. There remains in the township a curious building named Turton Tower, dating principally from the 16th century, and containing some fine contemporary woodwork.
