Bruton Dovecote
Bruton Dovecote
This strange building overlooking Bruton has 200 pigeonholes and may have been built as part of Bruton Priory (later Abbey) before it was dissolved by Henry VIII. The Berkeley family bought the Abbey, and could have used it as a look-out tower for watching hunting. Taken from a Bristol to Yeovil train running along the track through Bruton.
