Outchester Ducket

This startling Scheduled Monument has been turned into a very unusual holiday cottage. Imaginative reuse of an empty building is in itself sustainable but the introduction of a ground source heating system ensures that the building remains energy efficient in the longer term. The pipework is laid in an adjacent field to avoid disturbance of archaeological remains in the field around the dovecote.
