The monument consists of the remains of a dovecote, dating to the medieval period. Adovecote is a house for doves and pigeons, usually placed at a height above the ground, with openings and provision inside for roosting and breeding. Angle Dovecote is circular and of stone construction with a domed roof which has an uncovered opening in its centre. The roof is mostly grass covered. Most of the resting holes still exist.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval agricultural and settlement organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
