Details

HOLCOMBE ROGUS HOLCOMBE ROGUS ST 01 NE 5/127 - Dovecote and adjoining stable yard 5.4.66 walls approximately 2 metres east of Holcombe Court GV II*

Dovecote and adjoining stable yard walls. The dovecote is probably C16, the stable yard walls are circa 1845. Local grey limestone rubble; slate roof. The dovecote is now used as a grain silo. It is circular in plan with a plain angular eaves cornice and conical slate roof over a inner stone vault. At the apex is a circular hole below a C19 round lantern. The north-east side has a plain segmental-headed doorway below a window which is now blocked by the silo ventilator. The inside is unusual having no nest holes. Inside wooden boxes were fitted but none now remain. The dovecote now projects into the forecourt from the C19 stable yard. The wall this side is tall and contains a Beerstone Tudor style doorway with carved foliate spandrels. This dovecote, besides its intrinsic interest, plays an important visual role on the front of Holcombe Court (q.v) as viewed from the front drive.
