Listing Text

TM 05 NE
4/69 Buck of former post mill
- at Alder Carr Farm
(formerly listed as
9-12-55 dovecote at Houghton Park
- Farmhouse)

The body or buck of a post mill, now disused. Early C19, originally built
some ½ mile to the north. Moved here before 1880 after which it was used as a
dovecote. Timber framed and weatherboarded; as a dovecote it had a hipped
roof with gablets, now gone. Plastered internally with the nesting boxes
still in place, the original floors removed. Post mill bucks were
occasionally taken down and re-used in this manner; this is believed to be the
last such example in the country. It is of considerable interest because it
was moved in one piece and the original frame survives intact.
