Vernons Folly


A Folly is a building constructed for decoration but also suggests some other purpose.

In the original use of the word, these buildings had no other use, but from the 19th to 20th centuries the term was also applied to highly decorative buildings which had secondary practical functions such as housing, sheltering or business use.
