3/60 Dovehouse at Obourne's Farm

- II

Dovehouse. Late C16. Red brick in English bond. Square plan. Brick plinth with chamfered top approx. 0.5 metre high. High 2-light windows on W, S and E sides, with hollow-moulded jambs, mullion and flat heads (supported by iron bars), with moulded labels. Traces of plaster indicate that the windows were plastered originally. The head of the W window has collapsed. The S window is blocked but apparently intact. No glazing. Doorway on W side, enlarged for use as a stable. At half-height, moulded bricks and tiles form 2 projecting bands of ovolo profile all round, with 2 courses of bricks between, retaining traces of plaster, but pattern obliterated by weathering. No roof. Inside, broken square pegs and pegholes at regular intervals indicate the attachments of the former nestboxes, probably of wood. The roof and lantern were recorded by the RCHM in 1916, no. 41. No associated house remains, and only C19 and C20 farm buildings.
