Dovecote, Stoke College
(Formerly listed as
Gatehouse, Stoke College)


A C15 red brick dovecote tower with the design of a portcullis and chains in
the brickwork. There is also what appears to be the initial I and a bishop's
mitre lying sideways on 2 of the faces. The ground storey has 2 4-centered archways,
one on the south side and one on the east. Roof tiled, with small entrance gablets
to the dovecote. This building formed part of the College of St John the Baptist
founded by Edmund Mortimer, 5th Earl of March, when he converted the priory into
a college for secular clergy in 1415. The college was dissolved in 1548.
