Folly, Warreners House and Warren

This iconic Hartland landmark is believed to have been associated with a nearby warren, and was possibly the Warreners house or lodge. It was later fashioned into a Victorian Folly. This site was the focus of a recent community archaeological survey to identify the possible site of the Warren. The excavation report also outlines the history of the area in medieval times.
