Artist's Description

An English Heritage Grade II* Listed Building
Fort Putnam, at Dacre, Cumbria, England.
Fort Putnam is one of three well known folly farmholds (see below), East of the village of Greystoke, built about 1789 by Charles Howard (the 11th Duke of Norfolk) of Greystoke Castle.
Fort Putnam is really a screen round a farmhouse, with battlements, a turret and a large church window, and with details similar to those of the tower at the castle.
Said to have been so named to commemorate the success of the American War of Independence (the 11th Duke was apparently a supporter) and was named after General Israel ‘Puffing’ Putnam.
Fort Putnam is an English Heritage Grade II* Listed building, English Heritage List Entry 1145543.
