The second shot in the Walled Garden at Felbrigg hall is of the fine Dovecote to one side of the main area of the garden. The origins of the Dovecote are believed to be later than those of the house, dating back to around 1750. The interior of the Dovecote is lined with some 968 holes on its walls, each of which could accommodate two nests. By the 1920’s, however, the Dovecote was largely in ruins, and its days seemed numbered. Luckily, it was restored by Robert Ketton-Cremer at this stage, and it is still used to house a few ornamental white doves today. Again, as with Monday’s posting, keep this in mind for tomorrows image/s.
