10/104 Dovecote to north- east of Rose Castle, formerly listed with Rose Castle

G.V. II*

Former Dovecote. Dated 1700 over entrance. Large blocks of coursed red sandstone (probably from part of the medieval castle) on squared plinth with flush quoins, gable string course; sandstone slate roof with coped gables and kneelers. Small, almost square, 1½ storeys. Chamfered-surround entrance in gable wall, with dated lintel. Small oculi above. Small square opening in opposite gable. Interior has its complete boulins on 3 sides. See Transactions Cumberland & Westmorland Antiquarian & Archaeological Society, old series, ix, p425. Mention of a dovecote in a Parliamentary survey of 1649 may indicate that the building is earlier than the date. Other references refer to the dovecote as having been a watch tower. Has G.V. with Rose Castle.
