Lord of the Manor’s Folly

This fine Victorian folly stands in slightly overgrown landscaped grounds, at the entrance from Rafford Way.

 The folly was Grade II listed by English Heritage in 1955 because:

  • It is an intrinsically interesting mid-c19th folly, unusually employing Norman-style decoration to evoke the spirit of the former bishop’s palace
  • It is probably by Pulhams, one of the most innovative and interesting c19th firms of garden contractors.
