The Rocket, Pepperpot and Gate Follies and sorrounding earthworks – West Witton

This area of Wensleydale has quite a significant number of follies, and not far from The Temple Folly, we have three more; a rocket ship, a giant pepper pot and a gate, or guillotine, and stand just over the road from Park Hall.

The Temple Folly – Wensleydale

The Temple Folly, an 18th-century Grade II listed structure, stands as a testament to the architectural whimsy of the period. Nestled in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this folly is situated on the north side of the road from Leyburn to Hawes, near West Witton.

The Tower Folly, Bolton Hall

The Tower, approximately 100 metres to the north-east of Bolton Hall, close to Wensley village. It was built in the late eighteenth century and is a hexagonal tower that is part of a collection of follies in the local area.
