Chapeltown is a village of the civil parish of North Turton, in the Blackburn with Darwen unitary authority, in the north west of England. It is situated on the B6391 and lies on southern slopes of the West Pennine Moors. The village was once the historic centre of the old Turton Urban District.

The village consists mainly of eighteenth and nineteenth century terraced stone cottages. The tight clustering of properties along High Street is typical of villages with medieval origins. There is a small public garden containing the old village stocks and market cross; the timber elements of these have been renewed several times but the stone bases are original.

Chapeltown is the location of Saint Anne's Church. Turton Tower lies to the west of the village centre. The local pub is the Chetham Arms.

Chapeltown is part of the Rossendale and Darwen constituency. Jake Berry has been the Member of Parliament for Rossendale and Darwen since 2010.
