Alvecote priory and dovecote, Shuttington - North Warwickshire

The listed and scheduled remains of a C12 Benedictine monastery. The primary structure on site represents the C14 remodelling of the building and has been subject to heritage crime and natural deterioration. An associated medieval dovecote is also affected by issues with its roof covering and water penetration. Historic England is encouraging the Local Authority to establish a management plan for the site and carry out repairs to the standing remains of the priory and dovecote.
