Overview:

The Buildings at Risk Register does not only monitor buildings but also historic monuments which appear at risk each noted for their richly decorative design, rarity and historical significance.  There are a number of Follies that have been saved from an uncertain future by the Follies Trust.  Follies are delightful picturesque little structures that appear in the landscape, built to be enjoyed and admired; each telling a unique story.

This B+ grade listed monument appeared both in Volume 4 and 7 of the Buildings at Risk catalogue series having be under threat of demolition in the past due to its deteriorating state of disrepair. In 2010 the Follies Trust offered assistance and restoration work was completed in November following the removal of vegetation and the thorough inspection and repair of stonework.
