Dovecote at Hardwick Farm


Dovecote. Probably late medieval or C16. Local stone rubble
walls and corbelled domed roof with opening at the top. Round
plan. Tall building with altered doorway and 1 window opening
with iron bars; putlog holes.
INTERIOR: is lined with nesting holes.
With a handful of other examples in the south-west peninsula
and South Wales, this dovecote with its corbelled roof is
representative of ancient building traditions characteristic
of other Atlantic Seaboard provinces such as Brittany and
Southern Ireland.
