6/238 Dovecote at Knights Gate (formerly listed as Dovecote in grounds of 4.6.52 Quenington Court)

GV I

Dovecote. Reputed to be one mentioned in 1338, belonging to the Knights Hospitallers, although thought by some to be C17. Small round structure of rubble stone with projecting square section string course about 0.5m below projecting eaves of conical stone slate roof with retractable lantern "lid" with renewed stone ball finial. Very small low doorway to west with timber lintel and recessed plank door, slit vent over and to south. Inside wall is perforated with about 600 dove holes stacked at an angle one above each other inside wall, above rat rail around which moves revolving ladder on central wooden pin, thought to be the original ladder (or potence). Inside roof timbers have been strengthened with steel straps. (VCH, Gloucester, Vol,VII, 1981; David Verey, The Buildings of England: Gloucestershire: The Cotswolds, 1979)
