1/117 Dovecote and attached barn
and cow house about 10 yards
- north of Kipperknoll


Dovecote and attached barn and cow house. Probably C18. Coursed sandstone
rubble with corrugated iron roof, dovecote with hipped slate roof. Barn
of roughly four bays aligned north/south with contemporary - or possibly
slightly earlier - square dovecote forming and L-plan projection to the
east at the south end; probably mid-C18 part timber-framed two-bay stable
and loft at north end now linked by extension to main barn and cow house.
The main barn has two levels, the lower one is now a cow house - indeed
probably always was - and is largely masked on the west side by a C20
prefabricated shed (not included); to the left is a plain doorway; the
upper level has end gable loft entrances and a row of nine pigeon holes
above the left hand doorway. The link block is largely clad in corrugated
iron. The stable to left has a rubble ground floor with central doorway
flanked by simple window openings and a low timber-fronted, part weather-
boarded, upper level. The east flank is interesting because it also has a
row of nine pigeon holes over a doorway in line with the one on the opposite
side. The former north gable end of the main barn/cow house has pigeon
nesting boxes with ledges distributed on either side of the loft entrance -
this is now concealed by the link block. The dovecote is of two stages
capped by a small pyramidal glover above the truncated hipped roof; one
window to first stage to south and west; on ground floor, doorway to north,
partially blocked later doorway to south and lean-to to west.
