Jack the Carrot Eater

First Issued in March 2012

This is the first issue of the series “Follies of Pharos” and shows a structure popularly known as “Jack the Carrot Eater”.

Jack was a footman at the Castle and was regularly required to carry messages to the mainland and he sustained himself on raw carrots and ale.  Although the Castle archives record the bills for the folly’s construction they make no mention of its purpose.  Fortunately a folly doesn’t have to make much sense.
