Do you remember Adlestrop?

You might remember Adlestrop as being a stop on a railway line in somebody's poem. You might even remember Adlestrop as the location of a big house and rectory belonging to Mrs Austen's family, which was where they were staying when they suddenly got whisked off to Stoneleigh Abbey.

Well, this is neither house, but it is just down the road. A rather fanciful 18th century dovecote, in a nice Cotswold-y stone. You might imagine it as Col. Brandon's dovecote, since he has one.
