Sibthorpe Dovecote

This is the oldest and largest dovecot in Nottinghamshire, dating from the 14th century. There are in excess of 1260 nesting holes in 28 tiers. It was part of a large religious collegiate complex of which it is the last remaining building, although the adjacent medieval fishponds are still clearly visible. It is of sufficient importance to be Listed grade I, and is currently in the ownership of Nottinghamshire County Council.
