About the Follies Trust
The Follies Trust exists to try to secure the preservation and protection of unusual and interesting historic landmark structures often described as follies, which were usually erected to enhance the beauty of landscapes, gardens, townscapes, graveyards and parkland. The Trust also works actively to promote interest in and appreciation of these structures which tend to become neglected because they may have no specific use other than being decorative
