A visit to Wichenford

I bet you couldn't sleep over the weekend waiting to see this.

 

Well there it is. The inside of the Dovecote.

 

The doves are not real. Made of paper by the look of them 

 

Dovecotes were very useful. People kept pigeons and doves and they provided food , meat and eggs, and fertilizer. Well they do poop a lot

Love it, Bill!

There seems to be a few vacancies...
Bill Phillips: Perhaps they ran out of paper Ray
The inside is much more interesting than the outside, what a size!
Bill Phillips: It is pretty big. Don't think I have seen a bigger one

It would be very nice if they re-introduced real doves, Bill
Bill Phillips: It would Lisl

A magnificent building - what is the difference between pigeon and dove? The ancient family of Mr. Doveton might once have owned a dovecote, too.
Bill Phillips: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbidae

Will tell you far more than I could!

Well this is incredible; I've never seen anything like it before. I wonder if the planner of the wise rise estates of social housing in the 1960s got their ideas from?
Bill Phillips: Either this or battery hens Alan

........and I think we should go back to the pigeons, they send messages without the ransomware the only 'ransomware' you get is poop on the roof..... I can live with that.... fabulous picture.
Bill Phillips: They would probably kidnap the pigeons Astrid
They did not have a tall enough ladder to populate the upper area, I feel cheated.
Bill Phillips: Health and safety probably had something to do with it
I have been in real ones with real pigeons.
Bill Phillips: I hope you wore a hat

What a lovely building, as Lisl has suggested, it would be lovely to see real doves in there.
Bill Phillips: It would Anne.
Fantastic! They'll probably make a comeback one of these days!
Bill Phillips: Nothing would surprise me Tom

Bill Phillips: Thanks Peter. It must have been noisy in there once upon a time!
