In the Middle Ages, the predominant design for dovecotes was rectangular, and they were mainly associated with manor houses and parsonages. Square and circular dovecotes became popular from the 17th Century onwards and were mainly associated with farms.


There are the ruins of a square dovecote in the garden of Greystones, Church Street. I believe there are also remains of a dovecote in the garden of one of the houses in The Nook. There is an 18th Century dovecote in the garden of Hill House, Middleton.
