Full Description

The site of the ice house in Butterley Park is indicated by a circular depression with the remains of the entrance passage (brick). (1) All above ground remains have been demolished. (2) The condition of this ice-house is very poor; in fact, little remains. It is south of the hall next to a pond and is shown on the OS 6" maps of 1900 and 1921 (3) Modern map evidence shows that the area has been redeveloped and it is unclear whether even below-ground remains survive.
