During my journey to Cheltenham today I took a detour through Warwickshire to visit a very small but perfectly formed National Trust property, a fourteenth century dovecote near the village of Kinwarton. Inside its metre thick walls I found a fascinating circular interior, complete with hundreds of nesting holes and a rotating ladder for the owner to reach any of the nests. Sadly the access points have been covered with wire mesh to deter any would-be homemakers but I'm sure this curious little building would make an attractive and bijou residence for any passing doves.
