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.
The Dovecote circa 1950
Individual group visits can also be arranged.
FREE GUIDED WALK ON OPEN DAYS
Around Wollaton Village and St Leonard's Church leaves the Dovecote at 3.00pm
We are building a separate website for the Dovecote Museum
but in the meantime this page on the Society's website contains all you need to know
