9/17 Dovecote approx. 25 metres
- to south-west of Dinthill Hall


Dovecote. Circa 1734. Red brick with pyramidal slate roof. Octagonal
plan. Two storeys. Dentil brick eaves cornice. Central wooden glover
consisting of round-arched arcade with moulded architraves, imposts and
keystones, moulded cornice, and ogee lead cap with weathervane. Segmental-
headed loft openings to east and south-west, that to south-west widened in
late C20. Segmental-headed boarded door to north. Interior: brick
nesting boxes. Chamfered ceiling beam. Loft not inspected. Forrest
refers to a weathervane dated 1870. This was not evident at the time of
survey (January 1987) but it suggests that the glover might have been renewed
at that time. The dovecote forms part of the group of farmbuildings to the
west of Dinthill Hall (q.,v.), also including a barn and stables (q.v.).
