Things to do
Since 2010 we have developed the Folly Tower and woodland to be a place that offers a good deal of interest and fun whether the tower is open or not.
The Folly woodland hides many sculptures for you to seek out. The toadstools near the tower help you find the little animals.
Children love to look for the giraffe, the hare, the mole, the bat, the buzzard, the field mouse, the squirrel as well as the ‘sing a song of sixpence’ big blackbirds - 22* perched in the trees. Something may live in the fairy house in a tree trunk , quite near the mole.

The troll is keeping watch over the woodland.
The wooden cannon commemorating Oliver Cromwell in the Civil war points at Faringdon. Good for clambering on too.
There are a number of sitting areas among the trees, as well as benches round the outside of the woodland. Come and enjoy the peacefulness and the views while children play on the logs and balances nearby.
Have your photo taken looking through the heart.
