Aston dovecote, Aston - Cheshire West and Chester (UA)

Dovecote, 1691, of Flemish bond brown brick. Roofless, with deterioration to the walls of the building. Ownership of the dovecote has now been established but discussions regarding stabilisation and repair have stagnated. Considerable risk of collapse to the upper course of masonry with the establishment of mature ivy and woody vegetation. The interior is strewn with debris and an accumulation of composting vegetation.
