Dovecote (Bamburgh)

  • Description

    "This dovecote is beehive shaped. It stands 5.5m high and 6.7m wide. The walls are 1.2m thick and include three lines of bricks on which the doves can land. The three windows are modern additions. Inside are about 250 nest holes. The building still houses doves, and is similar to examples from North Yorkshire and southern County Durham. They are not common and usually date to the 16th or 17th century...."
