3/121 Dovecote and pigsties with screen
wall attached to east of Resugga


Dovecot and pigsties with screen wall. Circa late C18. Squared granite rubble.
Slurried scantle slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends.
Plan: The dovecot is the central block, with stabling at ground floor and pigeon loft
above; to right and left there is a lower single storey range of pigsties forming a
symmetrical ornamental front. At the left side, there is a screen wall attached,
which runs in an L-plan, attaching the dovecot and pigsties to the farmhouse; this
screens the farmyard to rear from the garden at the front of the farmhouse.
Exterior: The central dovecot is 2-storey, projecting slightly from the range to each
side; there is a central round-arched doorway with dressed stone arch, plank door
with weatherboarded tymparium. Above there are four rows of square pigeon holes with
slate perches, arranged in diminishing rows in the gable. The range of pigsties to
each side is blind at the front. At the rear, the dovecot has an external stone
stair to a loft door with granite lintel. The pigsties each have three doorways,
plank doors with strap hinges.
The screen wall is attached at the left end; about 2 metres high, in a short range in
an L-plan, with granite coping.
Interior: The ground floor of the dovecot has a cobbled floor with drain and stone
manger along the rear wall.
