The dovecote as a stone adaptor sending packets of information across the globe. A conduit of communication echoing good and bad news from times gone by, now silent empty mouths. One summer, two soldiers stayed at the Glynhir Estate; it is said that when they were recalled to join their army unit in France, they took several carrier-pigeons back with them. Some time later, following the English victory at Waterloo, the pigeons flew home to this dovecote in Wales with the news of Napoleon’s defeat.
