Not really clear how old the dovecot is from LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . On the one hand, "Bearing and potence thought to be 400 years old", but then "The 'potence' is a C18 introduction and the feeding platforms above are early C19 in date". And, although LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) settles for late C16, LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) says "The dovecot was in use from the Middle Ages until 1870". Apparently, "Several hundred squabs could be eaten at a single banquet at the castle."
