  • I think the dovecote MIGHT be a disused building on Mapperly Plains just before Brookfields garden centre on the right?

    • Your reply is interesting; do you mean Alice, the derelict buildings opposite Middlebeck Drive? I cannot recall a Dovecote there but can anyone else?

    • this is way before my time but I get a strong feel around shearing hill . or cricket feild area conway rd

  • The derelict windmill was at Newton in Nottinghamshire. The roundhouse still remains.
