The stone dovecote placed to the north of the moats at Haddington (within the Aubourn parish, south of Lincoln) dates from about 1420.

It has nesting boxes for 500 birds and would originally have been roofed.

Up until the sixteenth century the Lord of the Manor had a monopoly on keeping pigeons as a feudal privilege.
