Über dieses Bild:

The Dovecote at Swainsley, near to the village of Warslow in the Staffordshire Moorlands, England. This circular dovecote, is situated in fields close to the Manifold Way and the southern end of the Swainsley Tunnel. Pigeons and doves were once an important food source in Medieval Western Europe. The birds were encourage to nest in a dovecote, also known as a dovecot, for the provision of flesh, eggs and dung. Dovecotes were usually circular or square, and to the wealthy land owners, the possession of a dovecote was a symbol of status and power, which eventually became regulated by law.
