14/83 Dovecote at rear of No. 4 (formerly 31.12.69 listed as South Dovecote, at the Glebe) II*

Dovecote. Medieval or C17. Exterior coursed large sandstone rubble with cut sandstone door surround; interior has sandstone bands between whinstone nesting boxes except in upper part, where the boxes are of brick. Circular plan with walls 1.1 metre thick at the base; convex profile with four set- backs.

Boarded door on south in chamfered block surround; window opening above and to left is later insertion. Interior: 10 sets of nesting boxes below remains of wooden platform, and 5 above.

The dovecote lacks dateable architectural features, but its overall form is similar to that of a group of dovecotes in the Tees Valley, e.g. Gainford Hall, Barforth and Caldwell, some of which may be of late medieval date.
