THIS year’s festive Faringdon Folly Tower light is all about spreading a message.

Each year a beacon is put on the tower and this year’s one flashes morse code that reads F T – standing for Folly Tower obviously.

Eddie Williams, chairman of the friends of the Folly, said that the light made the tower the UK’s only officially registered, inland lighthouse.

Peter White, a friend of the Folly from Faringdon, created the light on the tower.

He said: “The idea this year is that we make a beacon with morse code telling you that it is Folly Tower.”

The beacon was installed just before Christmas and visitors can view it up close on Sunday, January 13.

Potential volunteers can call Mr Williams on 01367 241142.
