Notes

A circular stone dovecote, located 170 metres north east of Exton Road crossroads on rising land behind the village. The dovecote is a Grade II Listed Building of 17th or 18th century origin and is built of well-dressed grey stone. It has three stories and is entred on the ground floor by a square headed door. There are two sets of round headed windows; those on the first floor face east and west and are larger than those on the second floor which face north and south. A protruding slate string course is located close to the top of the walls, immediately beneath the upper windows. The modern conical roof is of wooden shingles with a wooden ball finial. The interior retains its nest boxes, with projecting stone alighting ledges, although no potence survives. Scheduled.
