The dovecote, malthouse, outer gatehouse and walling, gateway, granary and tithe barn, St Peter's Abbey, Abbotsbury - Dorset (UA)

This large scheduled site contains 12 individually listed buildings, six of which are in poor or very bad condition. Several of the buildings were included in a 2013/14 condition survey to inform a future repair strategy. The published photo shows the dovecote, which is disused and unstable. It has potential for low-key use in conjunction with a visitor attraction centred on the nearby Tithe Barn complex. In 2018/19, Historic England Repair Grants helped to fund project development work on the Tithe Barn and also works to the Granary.
