Appraisal

Although Clonygowan House no longer survives, this fine dovecote survives as a reminder of the former estate and house. Located in the front site of the house, this dovecote was designed in the manner of a folly and to be in full view of the house. Having fallen into dereliction, it was re-roofed.
