Large, fully intact Dovecote in the middle of the countryside based in a field at a dead end about 3 miles from Kinwarton. Impressive structure and open to explore through a small narrow doorway. Worth 10 minutes to explore, stopped here on the way to...More

It is about 1 mile outside Alcester and not a testing walk to get there. Very interesting to go and see, lovely location kept by the National Trust, has some details of its history, wear boots to trek over there.

This NT property is located in a middle of a field in a small village outside Alcester. It is an interesting building open from Dawn to dusk and free entry. Given its location it's probably best not to go after heavy rain. While there visit...More
