Faringdon Folly

The Faringdon Folly is a monthly broadsheet newspaper sold in the town of Faringdon and nearby villages in the Vale of White Horse in south-western Oxfordshire.

It was founded in 1989 by Ian and Carmen Smith, who sold it to Sir Ray Tindle’s Tindle Newspapers in 2000. The editorial offices are in Faringdon.

It’s named after a local landmark, a 43 metre-high tower built in 1935 giving a panoramic view of the Vale of White Horse.

It has three freesheet companions: What’s On in Faringdon, What’s On in Fairford and Lechlade and What’s On in Wantage.
