Ice-house. 1840s. Built for the 1st Earl of Ellesmere.
Hammer-dressed stone; brick internally. A barrel-vaulted
structure which creates a mound in the ground level and is
entered at one end. All that is visible externally is a
blocked up door in a segmental section of stonework which
reflects the shape of the vault inside. Interior not
inspected but said to contain an unusual vaulted approach
chamber with stone-lined doorways, 5 stone steps down and a
deep shaft which tapers downwards.
