A Medieval or 17th century dovecote situated within the garden of 3 Glebe Cottages. Exterior coursed large sandstone rubble with cut sandstone door surround; interior has sandstone bands between whinstone nesting boxes except in upper part, where the boxes are of brick. Circular plan with walls 1.1 metre thick at the base; convex profile with four set-backs. The dovecote lacks dateable architectural features, but its overall form is similar to that of a group of dovecotes in the Tees Valley, e.g. Gainford Hall, Barforth and Caldwell, some of which may be of late medieval date.
