Flounders Folly now open-Lower Dinchope, Shropshire
This is where your hilltop walk can end, at the hunting gate into the paddock where stands the Folly. Built in 1838 by Benjamin Flounders it was completely renovated by the Flounders Folly Trust and is now open to the public on about one day per month, subject to the availability of local volunteers for stewarding. Opening is indicated by a flag of St George flown prominently from the tower. The plaque on the right of the doorway records funding given by the Heritage Lottery Fund towards its renovation. Very limited car parking is available where the access track joins the road to the south-east of Moorwood, there is a steep climb up the hillside and there are no other facilities, on my last visit anyway. Time taken 2.49 pm BST (British Summer Time).
