Notes

A 16th or 17th century dovecote. The circular structure is built of flint rubble with some sarsen stone and brick decoration. The interior contains 350 nest boxes built of brick and set into the walls. The platform and potence also survive, though the associated ladder has gone. The tiled roof is conical, with a dormer window and a lantern cupola.
