Dovecot is a district of Liverpool, Merseyside, England. It is situated to the east of the city, bordered by Knotty Ash, West Derby, Broadgreen and to the east, Roby. The area is part of the Knotty Ash ward of Liverpool City Council.

On June 30, 2008 the neighbourhood was featured on the BBC TV documentary series Panorama, focusing upon the local youth gang culture, namely the "Dovey Eds" and their feuds with adjoining areas, specifically Page Moss, whom they refer to as "Moss Eds". The two areas are less than a mile apart.


Dovecot is a small district, composed primarily of 20th century town houses, usually large in size. There are a number of more desirable semi-detached houses on the border with Knotty Ash. The main attraction of the area is Dovecot Park, one of Liverpool's many public parks.


The closest railway station is Broad Green railway station, which offers regular services to the city centre, as well as to Manchester.
