PORTLAND

SY6871 WAKEHAM, Easton 969-1/4/69 (West side) Dovecote approx 5m WSW of No 106

II

Former dovecote, later privy, now store. Possibly C17. Good squared and coursed Portland block, stone slab roof. A small square building with an intermediate stone slab floor, and a window opening to S, blocked flush in brick; the roof in solid stone block to a steep pitch and stone ridge. C19 door to east, opening into mid-C20 connecting glazed corridor to house, and a small opening on the W wall, away from the house. Stone gutters project at ends. This looks from without like a grand privy structure, but seems to have been a dovecote originally; the blocked gable opening may have had louvre or dove openings. Interior has stone floor slab at eaves level, with central square opening. An unusual and rare survival, attached to a small house (qv) of corresponding interest historically.
