Notes

A circular stone dovecote, located approximately 60 metres west of Barton Court. It is rubble-built, with a 20th century rendered and whitewashed exterior. The dovecote is believed to date from the middle of the medieval period. It has an external diameter of around 5.5 metres and an eaves height of between 3 and 4 metres. There are about 900 stone nesting boxes built into the interior wall. The timber roof is conical, in the form of a cupola, and is thought to date from the 17th or 18th century. Entry is via a 1.3 metre high, round-arched opening with a timber door, located on the south-east side, and adjacent to a 5 metre long wall which connects the dovecote to the neighbouring barn. Scheduled.
