THE DOVECOTE MUSEUM GARDEN

The Dovecote Museum garden again received a prestigious Green Flag award in 2019 recognising the achievement of a national standard for parks and green spaces.

The Britain in Bloom It's Your Neighbourhood awarded the garden the highest accolade of a Level 5 assessment "Outstanding".

Many thanks to the volunteers who helped to make this achievements possible.

 

 The lawn was parched in Summer 2018 but you can still see the initials F W in the lawn.

Some interesting fungi have been seen on the lawn

"Down a quiet cul-de-sac a short walk from the centre of Wollaton village lies Wollaton's hidden gem, the 16th century Dovecote where you will step into a remarkable building and back into Wollaton history. This is one of the main attractions in Wollaton but remains little known".

Admission is free - donations welcome

The museum receives no funding and relies entirely on visitor donations.

Around Wollaton Village and St Leonard's Church leaves the Dovecote at 3.00pm
