dovecote approx. 30m SW of
Home Farmhouse

Farmbuildings and attached dovecote. Probably about 1830 for Evans family
formerly of Laxton Hall. Squared coursed limestone with Collyweston slate and
concrete tile roofs. L-shape plan. 2 single-storey ranges. The south range has 3
doorways with 2 casement openings between, all under gauged stone heads. Range
attached to east end of this range has 4 openings. West range, attached at right
angles, has doorway to right of centre and casement opening, to right and
lunette to left. The ranges are linked by a dovecote which forms a square corner
block with a doorway in the corner, and a pyramid type roof. Interiors not
inspected but noted as having some original roof structures. Loose boxes, a
cowhouse, fasting pen and slaughter-house were amongst the original uses of the
ranges of the model farm which this range forms part of, together with Home
Farmhouse (q.v.), barn and attached farm buildings approximately 30 metres
north-west of Home Farmhouse (q.v.) and Dutch barn and attached cartsheds
approximately 75 metres west of Home Farmhouse (q.v.).
