Sites and Monument Record: Parkhill House Doocot (SMR 45)

To the rear of the house, at the end of a small avenue of trees placed in line with the large bay window, stands a square doocot with Gothic details. On top of its walls are large battlemented blocks which would have screened the now missing low-pitched roof. An entrance faces the house, above which is a square panel containing a circle; in the quadrants so formed are the initials R/W above the date 18/14. The initials are those of Robert Warden who made alterations to the house and built the pigeon house. The entrance for the birds is in the E wall and a further doorway occurs in the S or back wall. The doocot is looking sadly neglected and requires attention soon.
