Hodson’s Folly and garden on the common land of Coe Fen have been controversial in the past. The Council and possibly Pemberton Landholdings did bring legal action against Hodson, for allegedly trespassing and causing damage to the adjacent landholdings in the 1880’s. However, Hodson won the cases brought against him including the Councils case in 1886, which cost them nearly £40 about 120 days of a craftsman wage at the time. At the time Cambridge Town Council asked the town clerk, Edmond Foster, to resign over the Hodson case; he didn’t.
