Built in the late 17th century, The Folly is Settles only Grade 1 listed historic house and the towns finest and most significant building. Once the home of Richard Preston, a wealthy lawyer, and standing on what was previously the main road into the town, The Folly was a symbol of wealth and power. Throughout its life The Folly has had a range of different uses, from a family home, farmhouse, bakery, warehouse, furniture shop, refreshment rooms, fish & chip shop, bank, salvage business and recently a holiday let. Yet some of its history still remains a mystery. Today, you can visit The Folly and discover our packed programme of exhibitions and events, enjoy a delicious drink, home baked cake or lunch in our Coffee House and buy work by Yorkshire makers in our Artisans Gallery shop. MUSEUMS & EXHIBITIONS AT THE FOLLY Open every day 15 February to 22 December 11:00am to 4:00pm Changing exhibitions throughout the year. There is no parking immediately adjacent to The Folly but we are only a 2 minute walk (125yds) from the pay & display car park at Greenfoot and a 5 minute walk from the pay & display car parks at Ashfield and Whitefriars
