The Lord and Lady Leigh of Hurley have submitted an application to do required works to a dove tower at Tithecote Manor in the elite Berkshire village.

Tithecote Manor is a Grade I listed building due to its historical significance.

The manor used to serve as a tithebarn for Hurley Priory, a Benedictine monastery that was forced to close in the  Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536.

The works relate to the dovecote in the manor, which served as a house for doves and pigeons.

A heritage impact assessment states the dovecote is of medieval origin.

Works involve  brick repairs, timber repair, repairs to the roof and redecorations.

Details have been submitted for the 61-flat development which is being built to replace the old Clean Linen Services in Furze Platt Road, Maidenhead.

Plans to knock down the site and replace it with 46 two bedroom flats and 15 one-bedroom flats were approved in December 2018.

Now, developers Oakford Homes Maidenhead have submitted details of ground water remediation works, which was a condition of approval for the development.

You can see the hoardings in Furze Platt Road in the gallery above.
