The Dovecot sits at the end of the yard at Poplars Farm, in Styrrup, the sculpture studios of Hilary Cartmel and Michael Johnson.
This 270 year old farm building is enjoying a new lease of life with the launch of the gallery. The pigeons have been evicted and the artwork has moved in.
We are honoured to be the custodians of this elderly building which is in itself a work of art and worth a visit in its own right.
But it was built as a productive part of the farm's economy, producing up to 2,000 squabs a year, it is an excellent home for artwork. It is fitting that it is put to work once more!
