Wall and open-fronted store in the grounds of Great Rissington
Manor. Probably built c1929 as part of garden designed by
Falconer, Baker and Campbell. Limestone rubble wall. Corrugated

west from the gable end of the north range for about 20m, at which
point there is a pier c4m in height with a pagoda-shaped dovecote
at the top of the wall then returns north towards for c3m to join
the gable end of the open-fronted store. Another wall then runs
away at right angles from about half-way along the rear wall of the
store. The wall linking the north range to the dovecote has flat
coping and an opening flanked by square piers adjacent to the gable
end of the north range. Corner pier with pagoda-shaped dovecote
with projecting moulded landing platforms and pyramidal finial with
a small ball at the apex. The other sections of walling have
saddleback coping. Four-bay open-fronted store facing east. Each
bay is divided by a square stone-built pier.
