After their successful first book, Doves and Dovecotes, Peter & Jean Hansell show that their enthusiasm remains unbounded and that their research is still painstakingly devoted in A Dovecote Heritage, a self-contained work which may be enjoyed either as a companion to the previous work or on its own.

It will appeal to anyone interested in the social, historical or architectural aspects of dovecotes.  There are detailed studies of particular areas, including London, Scotland and mainland Europe, alongside many other subjects  Being a survey of all branches of dovecotery it contains examples both extraordinary and arcane as well as the bold and the simply delightful.

The striking colour images, complementing a wealth of black and white illustrations - most taken especially for this volume - add to the overall design of the book, taking full advantage of the Hansell's ability to amuse and inform.

Anyone excited by these buildings or their feathered inhabitants must be prepared to be captivated by this book.  The search for dovecotes can be obsessive.  You have been warned....
