    Hi my name ia Harry. I live very close to that folly tower, it is in a field just behind my house! This Folly Tower was built by George Head Head, Mayor, Magistrate and Banker of Carlisle. He owned Rickerby House in the 19th century, at the time towers and turrets were in vogue. This Folly Tower and most Folly Towers were to keep watch over a large peice of land (a farm in this case). Most Folly Towers are formerly a Roman watch-tower. hope this helped 🙂
