Details

BOTUS FLEMING SX 46 SW 6/3 Dovecot about 40 metres west of Moditonham Park GV II Dovecot, built as a combination dovecot and folly, formerly in the grounds of Moditonham House (qv). Circa mid C18. Slatestone and Devon limestone rubble, with brick dressings; formerly had a slate roof. Plan: Octagonal tower dovecot, with flanking walls, wall to left partially demolished. Gothick style. Exterior: The dovecot is built in the form of a 3-storey octagonal tower, with the ground level raised at the rear. The front has a round-arched doorway, partially blocked with a plain door inserted. At first floor there is a central cross loop, and to left and right a single pointed arched light with brick head. At the rear, there is the timber lintel surviving from a former door, now below ground level, and a tall narrow window opening to rear left. Attached to right and left, rubble wall, the wall remaining to right is about 5 metres long an about 2 metres high, with one pointed arched window opening with brick head. Interior: The dovecot is of circular plan internally. At ground floor level the walls are plastered, with a row of 4 nesting boxes to right and left. At upper level, the walls are brick-lined, with rows of square pigeon-holes. The rear door has been blocked in rubble. This is an unusually designed dovecot, and would have been viewed from Moditonham House, to the south, with the appearance of a Gothick folly.
