MIDFORD (Avon) - Roebuck’s Folly

Information

A folly castle built in 1775 for Henry Disney Roebuck from designs by John Carter with the plan view like the ace of clubs. It has been suggested that the card made its owner a fortune. However this is unlikely as the porch which forms the stem of the symbol was added after 1810.

Location

The house is on private land, but can be seen from the footpath on the former railway line.
