corner of grounds to Keinton
Mandeville County Primary School



Dovecote. Possibly C18 with C20 roof. Local lias stone roughly cut and squared; clay pantiled lean-to roof. Rectangular
plan. Plain doorways on north, east and west faces; in west gable pierced stone slabs with stone slate shelves for
birds, 2, 4 and 6 holes in layers. Inside room for 21 nests on north wall, 1 on west wall and 6 on east wall, all
formed with heavy rough lias slab shelves; Keinton stone flag floor. Unusual building of its type; the nest holes
larger than usual; and building isolated and not obviously connected with any older property. This structure is
possibly a bee house.
