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 4 acre, circular 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.  Ten minutes walk from Faringdon’s historic market place where refreshments are available, and 2 hours free parking. The tower is open from April to October on the first Sunday of the month, plus Bank holidays and is available for private openings.

The woodland is always open. The footpath starts from the Stanford Road. Nearest postcode is SN77AQ.
