Sites and Monument Record: Avondale Doocot (SMR 5)

A low battlemented tower is placed over a stone archway of the square courtyard of farm buildings at Avondale House. It houses a doocot which, like the tower, dates to the early 19th century. It has twelve arched dove holes in a row. The long entrance drive to the mansion passes under the pointed doocot arch to become an open drive again as it swings across the lawn to the house. The estate was originally known as Clarkstone.
