Folly is a brickwork confection which was constructed over a long period by three workmen, overseen
Until the end of July 2015, the village hall occupied the Eastern part of the Folly
(to the right of the picture above)
The Western half of the Folly(to the left of the picture), served as
the Village Primary School until 1987 and was sold off after the school
At various times the West end of the Folly served as commercial premises and a Nursery School, although it had been unoccupied for some time before the building was sold in 2015
Despite its listed status, The Folly faced an uncertain future as a Village Hall due to financial cost of maintaining the structure.
Last, but by no means least, until February 18th Farringdon had two Village Pubs one at each end of the village,
The Rose and Crown is now open - For a while we were down to one pub as the Rose closed down on February 18th 2017.
