Dovecote on site of manor house and gardens, Wakerley - East Northamptonshire

Roofless ruin of rectangular stone dovecote, C16-C18. Stone nesting boxes with alighting steps inside. Partial collapse of the internal east wall nesting boxes has occurred and the wall to the north has collapsed to a few courses above ground level. There is evidence of structural instability to the south and east elevations. It is likely that livestock is contributing to the displacement of stonework. Positive discussions have been held with the agent about the need for repair and management.
