About Friends of the Folly and the Folly Tower Trust
Friends of Faringdon Folly welcome anyone who is interested in the Folly Tower and the Woodland to become a friend.
In addition to the Friends, many people and organisations sponsor or support the work of the Folly Trust.
Faringdon Folly Tower Trust (284795) is a registered charity. Details of the trustees and financial details can be found on the Charity Commission website
The main support provided by the friends is in providing stewards for tower open days between April and October each year. We ask volunteers to do at least one 2 hour duty each season. It is a pleasant way to spend time in the tower, chatting to visitors and enjoying the views.
Some Friends are resource for the ongoing maintenance and management of the tower and woodland.
The Friends of Faringdon Folly is chaired by Eddie Williams
Friends of the Folly:
· Ensure the tower and the woodland are maintained and developed
· Raise awareness in the local community and beyond
· Gather and display historical information about the Folly
and keep the spirit of Lord Berners alive. Innovation and creativity, whimsical humour and frivolous silliness are therefore inevitably an important part of our custodial duties.
The Folly Woodland is privately owned by the Faringdon Folly Tower Trust.
It is not public land but we allow the general public to have permissive access.
