Dovecote at the Manor House, Lower Slaughter - Cotswold

A late C16 structure of coursed rubble and Cotswold stone roof. This large dovecote hosts two separate columbaria inside, built of nesting boxes from ground to the roof. It is currently without a use and in poor condition. Some emergency repairs to the roof coverings have been carried out in 2018.
