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. Both the roof structure and its coverings are suffering from deterioration following the loss of some stone tiles around a lantern. Some emergency repairs are planned for summer 2018.
