Barwick Park Follies: The wonderful and weird follies of Barwick Park are located on the boundaries of the estate at the four points of the compass. Originally thought to have been built during the first half of the 19th century, to provide work during a slump in the glove-making industry, the follies are now thought to date from the 1770s, earlier than the present Barwick House. In the best tradition of follies, their appearance defies explanation other than the decorative, but they provide a source of fascination and speculation to all who look upon them.

This fairly level walk takes in the following follies: Jack the Treacle Eater, The Fish Tower, The Rose Tower, The Obelisk
