Dovecote 160 metres north west of Coombe Place, Offham, Hamsey, Lewes - South Downs (NP)

Early C19 dovecote within the grounds of Coombe Place. Ornate octagonal building of flint with dressings and quoins of red and grey brick. Water ingress and collapse of chalk and brick nesting boxes inside is the cause of risk. Discussions have taken place with the owners as to how a repair project might be completed.
