NT4769 : Herdmanston Doocot

near to Samuelston, East Lothian, Great Britain

Herdmanston Doocot
Herdmanston Doocot
Two-chambered 17th century lectern doocot with two rat courses and small entry holes and ledge above the W doorway. Strangely this doocot is on the opposite side of the River Tyne from the site of the mainly 17th century mansion of Herdmanston (I know, I waded across). A coat of arms on the S wall bears the remains of the date '1669'. There are large numbers of stone nests (once about 2,000) in both chambers.
