|Name:||Post medieval folly or dovecote|
The remains of a garden folly or dovecote exist here, in the form of a round tower with a brick base. It currently stands about 4m high but was once nearly 8m high with a dome and decorative stained glass. It probably dates to the late 19th century and was likely associated with the Manor House.
