Dovecote. C18 or earlier. Local lias stone cut and squared; Welsh slate over stone slate base courses between coped
gables with gabletted finials; brick chimney stack. 2 storeys, single bay. Plain doors in north wall below and in east

dovecote, with accommodation for about 500 nests within the four walls; two close double-collar roof trusses flanking
