13/18 Icehouse approx. 460m SE of
Cornbury House

- II

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.).
