The Dovecot in the Walled garden at Felbrigg Hall in Norfolk, UK. The house and garden belong to the National Trust. Both house and dovecot are Listed Buildings.

The Jacobean house on the North Norfolk Coast was originally built by Thomas Windham employing the master-mason Robert Lyminge, who was at the same time rebuilding another nearby property, Blickling Hall.

The Georgian Dovecot is octagonal and probably belongs to the period of the major rebuilidng that took place in the 1750s. Whatever the answer is, it is a stunning example of this type of structure in a magnificent setting – well worth a visit!

    Such a fine structure, & you’ve caught it to great advantage. Perfect harmony, Tim!

  • Thank you as ever, Sheila. I have to admit the idea of framing it with the archway came from the NT poster/publicity shots, though the compositional detail is my own. Mind you, apart from too many people, it’s hard to go wrong with such a fine building and weather to match!
