Listed Dartmoor folly thought to be the architect's smallest building goes up for sale

A tiny building designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens has gone on sale for about £10,000.

The grade II listed folly on Dartmoor is thought to be the architect's smallest building. Known as “The Pimple”, the 94-year-old stone structure sits on top of a 12m mound over a disused reservoir on Whitchurch Down.

The 4m-long structure differs somewhat from some of Lutyens' other creations in the UK and abroad, which include substantial parts of New Delhi - including Parliament House - and the Cenotaph in London.

Neil Woolcock of Ward and Chowen estate agents in Tavistock, which is handling the sale, said the vendor bought it a few years ago from South West Water because it was "a little corner of England”.
