Faringdon Folly Tower and Woodland

This unique unusual 100ft tower is Faringdon’s icon and the last major folly to be built in England.
It sits on Folly Hill, within a charming circular 4 acre woodland of splendid Scots Pine and broadleaf trees, some more than 200 years old.
Check out the fantastic views over 5 counties and find out about the history of Folly Hill, Henry James Pye (of Sing a Song of Sixpence fame), Oliver Cromwell and the very eccentric Lord Berners (the creator of the tower).
Seek out the 24 black birds and giant willow pie, Cromwell’s cannon, the fairly useless bridge, Lord Berners in a tree! and a variety of birds and animal sculptures lurking among the trees.
The Belvedere room is approx. 12ft square and the octagonal lantern room above slightly smaller. There is access to the roof.
Photos of the tower interior and exterior, the woodland and the history can be found on:www.faringdonfolly.org.uk
