SP9613 : For the birds ...

near to Aldbury, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

For the birds ...
For the birds ...
This little farm building has (what I think is) a little dovecote on the top. Certainly the birds were finding it quite interesting when I was there. For once it's very easy to date this building - as whoever built it helpfully formed a large 1753 in darker bricks on the gable end.
A rather charming little building I think.

[Edit 2011] Thanks to Jonathan Kington for pointing out that this is a Grade II listed dovecote. Listing here LinkExternal link
It is known as Stocks Dovecot and was built for the Duncombe family, former owners of Stocks Manor (see SP9613 : "Stocks" Aldbury - Hotel, Golf & Country Club)
