Dovecote (used for pigeons). c.1880. Thomas Worthington for Mary
Worthington. Flemish bond brick, stone dressings and
Westmorland slate roof. Octagonal, of 2 stages (the lower
having been half buried when the motorway was constructed)
with a conical roof. Lower stage has 2 doorways with
elaborately moulded pointed brick arches and 4 small lancet
openings. The upper stage is corbelled out from the
octagonal base to form a circular stage which housed the
nesting boxes. Moulded eaves cornice, 4 picturesque gabled
dormer bird entries with planted timber decoration. An
elaborate vane no longer exists and much of the brickwork is
in a poor state of repair. The only remaining building of
the once important site of Sale Old Hall.
