The North Craven Building Preservation Trust acquires and preserves buildings important to the heritage of North Craven. We own The Folly, home to The Museum of North Craven Life, which tells fascinating tales of the people and landscape of North Craven.
Built in the late 17th century, The Folly was once the home of a wealthy lawyer. During its life, it has been a family home, farmhouse, bakery, warehouse, furniture shop, refreshment rooms, fish & chip shop, bank and a salvage business. It has so many stories to tell and holds a diverse collection of objects and an archive rich with the history of the North Craven area, its social, industrial and cultural development.
