The Bond's Folly1930s poster of Grange Arch in Dorset is due to be sold under auctioneers Lyon & Turnbull at The Mall Galleries, London on April 29.

The folly, also known as Creech Folly, was built in 1746 by Dennis Bond, the then owner of Creech Grange, and is located near the second highest point of the Purbeck Hills, Ridgeway Hill in Dorset.

It lies within the parish of Steeple.

The series comprised a selection of follies and sometimes unusual attractions, encouraging the public to explore the British countryside.

It was built as a feature that could be seen from his manor house and today it is in the hands of the National Trust.

The starting bid is estimate between £300 to £500.
