Dovecote to north-
east of Rose Castle,
formerly listed with
Former Dovecote. Dated 1700 over entrance. Large blocks of coursed red
sandstone (probably from part of the medieval castle) on squared plinth with
flush quoins, gable string course; sandstone slate roof with coped gables and
kneelers. Small, almost square, 1½ storeys. Chamfered-surround entrance in
gable wall, with dated lintel. Small oculi above. Small square opening in
opposite gable. Interior has its complete boulins on 3 sides. See Transactions
Cumberland & Westmorland Antiquarian & Archaeological Society, old series, ix,
p425. Mention of a dovecote in a Parliamentary survey of 1649 may indicate that
the building is earlier than the date. Other references refer to the dovecote
as having been a watch tower. Has G.V. with Rose Castle.
