The name of the sculpture at Windmill Hill is a play on the original name of the area. It was originally known as Gillman’s Folly until Major Innes had a windmill built there in 1825 to grind wheat and corn for government contracts.
Folly, created by Rick Reynolds in 2004 represents the wooden shaft and stone grinding wheels of the windmill which once stood on the site.
