What’s For Tea?

Bettison’s Folly is a bit like a Rapunzel Tower that was made out of something called ‘treacle bricks’ in the first half of the 19th century, probably sometime between 1829 and 1853. The tower was there long before the houses and school were built and was used as a look-out tower. In the Second World War the tower was used as an air-raid look out point and there was a siren that would warn people about bombs being dropped.
