It is recommended that any reports of potholes etc should be directed to Hantsweb rather than the old pothole site as it would appear that the lag between report and repair is reduced.

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.
Despite a close resemblance to a Building Site several apartments are now listed for sale.

*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.

 

*The Golden Pheasant re-opened on 12th December but the restaurant is temporarily closed until further notice.
Takeaways available on Fridays and Saturdays

For the latest information, check the Golden Pheasant Facebook and Rose & Crown website for updates.
