We realise that with over 1,900 images and 250,000+ words some errors will inevitably creep into the Heritage Ebooks Follies of Britain series, the biggest digital heritage ebook project ever published..
Please let us know of any you may discover. They will initially be listed here before being incorporated into new editions of the ebooks; we do not plan to issue these more frequently than once every 12 months. Purchasers of the original editions from the Heritage Ebooks website will be able to download the revised editions at no additional charge. Only when a substantially new ebook containing extensive revisions, additions and images is published with a different ISBN will payment be required.

Follies of Warwickshire: Revised entry —
SP 282 442 / C18
Just southeast of Halford, this tiny hilltop village in scenery more reminiscent of the Wiltshire plains than Warwickshire has at Idlicote House a charming eighteenth century dovecote cum watertower, octagonal, castellated, with Saracenic ogees, Norman arrowslits, Roman Diocletian windows and a pyramidal spirelet roof — the history of architecture captured in one tiny tower. It is thought to have been brought here from its original home at Kenilworth Castle, where it housed 1,002 birds.
Follies of Wiltshire: Stourhead. The image captioned Temple of Flora is the Temple of Apollo.
