Perrott’s Folly Tower Restoration

West Midlands

30 April 2014

Further information

A seven-storey tower that is thought to have inspired the writer JRR Tolkien is to be restored and opened to the public - if enough funds can be found. Trident Reach needs to raise £1 million to restore it to its former glory.He lived in Stirling Road as a young boy and would have passed Perrott’s Folly and the neighbouring Edgbaston Waterworks tower on his way to and from school. It is believed these two structures made such an impression on the young Tolkien that they inspired the book 'The Two Towers' - the second part of his world-famous Lord of the Rings trilogy.
