Folly for a flyover...


As well as wondering why abandoned roadside factories couldn’t been transformed into giant fortresses, much of my childhood motorway musings concerned the spaces beneath them. Even as a youngster, I worried about what a waste they were: much better to fill them with grand, childish, dystopian visions, no? It’s got a roof already, why not walls? Apparently I’m not the only person to have seen the potential that this otherwise wasted wonderland offers: for two months only, Folly for a Flyover will be turning the underside of the A12 into a brilliantly artistic omnibus. Hand built from local, reclaimed materials, the ‘folly’ will host everything from cinema to canal cruises, from to performance to play. Sounds like a grand, childish, dystopian vision to me…
