Before You Go

Netheravon Dovecote is a charming yet practical building, and an excellent example of an early 18th century dovecote. It still retains most of its original 700 chalk nesting boxes.

How to Find it: From the church car park, walk back down the lane from the church and turn left into Millennium Park, via a black pedestrian gate.
