RCAHMW colour transparency showing the dovecot at Pentre Bychan taken by I.N. Wright, 1979.

Pentrebychan Hall was built in 1823-4, replacing an earlier house. The dovecote built in 1721 was part of the appurtenances of the earlier house. It is sited on the south side of the driveway to the crematorium, in the grounds of the now demolished hall. It is circular, of brick with stone dressings, and a conical slate roof with a vent below the apex. There is a doorway, and a series of oval openings half-way up, with stone surrounds.
