13/18 Icehouse approx. 460m SE of
Icehouse. Probably c18, Coursed limestone rubble. Circular plan with domed roof.
Double skin below ground level. Entrance to north with corbelled stone roof and
boarded door with wrought-iron strap hinges and flat stone arch. Interior: domed
chamber. Some brick in dome. The double-skin construction is unusual and was
probably employed to improve the thermal performance of the building, especially
as it is not covered by an earth mound. The icehouse stands in a remote position
in Cornbury Park, at some distance from Cornbury House (q.v.).
