Coe Fen: Hodson's Folly and the Cam
"Next to the footbridge at Sheepís Green is a little classical building in a walled garden. Hodsonís Folly was built in 1887 by local resident John Hodson so that he could keep a watchful eye on his daughters bathing in the river while overseeing his nearby fish hatchery. The land used was common land which Hodson, who was at one point a butlerís assistant at Pembroke College, had annexed without permission. As a speculative builder Hodson excelled: his building sports a coat of arms, showing a swan in a rain storm, and the summer house and its garden are in many ways a Cambridge college in miniature" - University of Cambridge website.
