Minster Lovell Hall & Dovecote

Summary:

The ruins of a 15th Century manor on the banks of the River Windrush, with a complete dovecote nearby.
The ruins of a large 15th Century manor in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds are set around a courtyard in an attractive setting on the banks of the River Windrush. The site comprises a fine hall, tower and complete dovecote nearby.

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.

Minster Lovell Hall is now in the care of English Heritage.
