Farringdon is a small village in Hampshire, about four miles south of the town of Alton
on the A32, Fareham road.

The village is in two parts, Lower and Upper Farringdon, linked by Shirnall Hill,
a tree covered lane that rises from the east side of the A32.

Massey's Folly from the SouthMassey's Folly (Not open to the Public) is a brickwork confection which was constructed over a long period by three workmen, overseen by the 'eccentric' Reverend Thomas Massey, Vicar of Farringdon from 1875 -1919. Until the end of July 2015, the village hall occupied the Eastern part of the Folly (to the right of the picture above)
and was used by a number of organisations from within and well beyond the village boundaries.

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 closed. Farringdon Children now attend Chawton or Selborne 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 eventually sold for development.


Despite its listed status, The Folly faced an uncertain future as a Village Hall
due to the heavy financial cost of maintaining the structure.
The Village Hall Management Committee eventually sold Massey's Folly for conversion into apartments and
The Folly was officially handed over to the new owners at the end of July 2015.
Construction work isunder way but progressing so slowly it is virtually at a halt.

*Last, but by no means least, Farringdon has two welcoming village pubs, one at each end of the village.
*Both have a wide choice of real ales on offer and serve an excellent selection of home cooked food.

The Rose & Crown and Golden Pheasant restaurants are extremely popular with both locals and visitors so you would be well advised to book a table in advance if you are planning to sample their menus.

*Both Pubs are temporarily closed under the current Covid restrictions
