We visited the folly at the end of our walk to the sea and train line and it was well worth it. When you get to the top there is a quite good information board and the views are purely brilliant!

We never fail to take the woodland walk to Conygar Tower when staying in the local area. Most definitely steep in parts but a good sense of achievement upon reaching the top. Great that you are able to go inside the structure. There is also...More
