The monument consists of the remains of a dovecote, dating to the post-medieval period. A dovecote is a house for doves and pigeons, usually placed at a height above the ground, with openings and provision inside for roosting and breeding. The dovecot is small with a circular, stone-built domed roof.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of post-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.
