5/92 Tower, north of Eden

Possibly dovecote. Circa 1835, for George Head Head, whose house is now Eden
School. Walls of mixed red and yellow dressed sandstone, with slated octagonal
pointed roof. 3 storeys of octagonal shape: very late date for a dovecote and
as the owner liked tower follies, it is possible that this may be an earlier
building moved from another location. Lancet openings, one to each face and
storey with chamfered surrounds and plain surround to entrance: string course
to each storey: roof timbers exposed and slates almost gone: no internal
