Minster Lovell Hall and Dovecote

Minster Lovell Hall and Dovecote

The extensive and picturesque ruins of Minster Lovell Hall are located in a beautiful rural setting beside the River Windrush. Approached from the north, through the adjacent churchyard, the 15th century site comprises a fine hall, tower and complete dovecote nearby - making this a particularly interesting day out for anyone considering a visit. 

Minster Lovell Hall was originally home to Richard III's henchman Lord Lovell, one of the richest men in England. Although designed to serve as a symbol of great wealth, following several changes of hands the hall was abandoned - then dismantled and demolished - in the 18th century, leaving only the fascinating remains that stand today.

Please note: Dogs on leads are welcome.

Guidebooks are available to purchase from St Kenelm's Church, Minster Lovell.
