The most comprehensive guide to follies in the UK, and a very enjoyable read, even though it is long out of date. Two editions of the book by Barbara Jones that cover all the follies in the UK she could find at the time. The first edition came out in and the second much larger tome in A complete series of ebooks, one for each county in England, with directions on how to find each one.

You can buy them from Heritage eBooks directly, or from Amazon. A very cheap, postcard sized, book with some good colour photos and brief descriptions of mostly well known follies, but also with a few rarely seen ones like the Witch House at Hestercombe. A good introduction to the subject. Follies, dovecotes and garden buildings explained in their context with a mixture of black and white photos, a colour photo section and some neat line drawings.

This can fairly be called the definitive guide to Follies in Ireland. Meticulously researched, every folly is not only photographed but presented as a small measured drawing as an elevation, and often in plan as well. Despite the title, this is a book all about follies and the best possible introduction to the subject in a small book. By maze designer Adrian Fisher, this is a small, pretty picture book divided into two sections, one on Follies and the other on Mazes. All are well known and the text is fairly brief.

A nice photographic introduction to either subject. Lots of sumptuous colour photos of follies, temples and lodges, with some description as well, but essentially a book of photos. Devoted entirely to the follies of Dorset, and as detailed as you might expect from long time FF member Jonathan Holt. Small in size but packed with detail, this is arranged as a series of walks with hand drawn maps taking in a folly or two on each one. The text gives a good description of the locality and difficulty of access as well as historical detail.

Despite the title, this is largely about follies, both in Manchester and within a broad radius of the city, so it includes many in Cheshire. It is well illustrated and includes several little known or very recently built follies, so is an essential read. A slim paperback book covering fifteen Irish follies each with a handdrawn picture and a page of description. A small and ancient paperback book, but full of period charm.

The pictures are all hand drawn, and either black and white or pastel coloured. An astonishingly detailed journey along the A — which runs from East Sussex into Hampshire, taking in every conceivable feature of interest along the way. Rita and Pieter are long time FF members and from the Netherlands. This is the fourth edition which runs to pages. A whole mixture of odd structures found in the countryside, but with a good section on follies, notable for some shots of the recently built Teapot Tower at Deene Park.

A campaigning book — old, but still available. It is satisfying to see that many of these threatened buildings have now been completely restored.

  5. An early book which includes black and white photos of many well known follies — most of them here are in a ruinous state which makes it a bit gloomy. Better times for follies were still to come! There are few actual follies in here, but the houses, such as Fonthill Abbey, Hope End and Holdenby House will be familiar to folly lovers.

    General enquiries

    Beautifully illustrated. Some will excite, others will strike you as just oddly shaped modern office buildings. A good historical intoduction with black and white pictures, followed by a longer coloured section with a good selection of buildings in many styles from the great parks of Germany and Austria. This huge book covers fantasy structures in Europe, Asia, Africa and America.

    It concentrates on what might be called Outsider Art or Art Brut and so it travels from things that are little more than piles of junk, through to mad sculptural gardens to full blown architectural follies.

    All of this century, and a very inspiring book with huge, vivid, photographs. An edited, smaller version was published in , which might be easier to find, but do try and get the original version if you can. An admirable attempt at cataloguing all the follies across America — an excellent series of photographs and descriptions of buildings which vary from stone towers throught giant animals, to houses made from bottles.

    Long out of print, but worth looking for, is this book of Follies, which in this case means mostly big odd houses in unusual styles such as oriental, but with a smattering of really odd edifices such as the Elephant Hotel and the Leaning Tower of Niles — lots of pictures, but all either line drawings or coloured paintings.

    A book which looks at different ypes of obsessive gardening, with chapters on topiary, self taught gardeners, sculpture, surrealism and of course follies. Contemporary gardens from all over the world are featured, and these include folly buildings, strange figures and creatures made from trees or turf, mazes, waterfeatures etc, but the unifying themes are of odd, surrealist, features. Published by the National Trust at the launch of its appeal to restore the gardens of Stowe, this book describes the evolution of the garden and the aims of its various owners, along with lots of pictures of the numerous temples.

    A book of large colour photos of this amazing garden which is arising from the remains of an older garden ravaged by opencast mining. It could be called a folly garden, but not as we know it! A unique catalogue of British and Irish shell artists and their designs in grottoes, shell houses, pavilions and garden landscapes from the 18th century to the present day. A Re-Appraisal.

    A Walk Through Rye, East Sussex, England

    An overview of park gate lodges in the UK, going into some detail on the architectural forms and fashions of the different periods as well as the social backgounds of the people who built them and lived in them. Lots of good pictures as well, but this is a well written history, not just a picture book. This one is the reverse of the Trumpet at a Distant Gate book — lots of beautiful colour pictures of lodges and not a lot of text, in a small pocket size book ideal for Christmas stockings.

    A very comprehensive guide to the pyramids of Britain and Ireland with plenty of historical detail on each one. The agency closed after Keith Price died in In HPR was taken over by fotoLibra. A digital publishing company within the group, Heritage Ebooks, was launched in with forty titles. The book has sold over , copies and is the standard rule book for the game in Britain and the Commonwealth. The publication of the book led to the foundation of the amenity society and charity The Folly Fellowship , [13] [14] of which Headley was President.

    That's half the pleasure of the things: if they could be categorised and catalogued and pinned down like specimen butterflies we would lose that frisson of excitement and mystery when another unidentified ghostly grey ruin looms up out of a wet wood. A folly is essentially a misunderstood building, because folly can only lie in the eye of the beholder. Headley's first essay on typography, Fabulous Fonts , was published by Pomegranate in Cassell Illustrated published his Encyclopaedia of Fonts in He has somehow combined a lifetime in publishing with writing books on architecture, follies, fonts and Mah-Jong; selling listed buildings; and founding fotoLibra.

    He has spent six months of his life at the Frankfurt Book Fair and to his eternal regret has never scored a try for Llanelli or Wales. Headley currently writes two blogs, the fotoLibra Pro Blog fotoLibra Pro Blog , which deals with photography, image sales and digital publishing, and fotoLibrarian From Harlech to London , his personal blog which concentrates on his interests, hobbies and opinions. The latter is notable for its typically British self-deprecating autobiography: "Gwyn describes himself as enthusiastic, lazy, persistent, creative, fat, well-educated, pedantic, polite, greedy, gentle, prejudiced, kind, unreliable, well-meaning, curious, shy, gregarious, snobbish, confident, cowardly, optimistic, comfortable, irritable, at ease, nervous, thirsty, tired, willing, competent, unselfconscious, spry, hard-working, querulous, prolix and cheerful.

    His favourite word is Sharawaggi, he would like his double helix to combine musicality and common sense, he has a huge vocabulary in several languages and no grammar in any. He enjoys drinking, eating, women, reading, writing, urban walking, typefaces, architecture, guitars, rugby, cricket, F1, Wales, London, the USA and Europe. He describes enjoyment as a two-bottle lunch with an old friend. He is married, with a tortoise, two mogs and a Golden Retriever. He married Yvonne Seeley in at St. John's Chapel in the Tower of London. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Archived from the original on 6 February Follies: A National Trust Guide.
