Disused icehouse described in 1983 as being in fair to good condition, although with some cracking. Exposed externally with a rendered dome. All brick, with a short 2 door passage. Remains of floor structure which rested on spring course (1, 2)
This well-maintained icehouse is situated c. 400m west of the house in a small hollow. It has an exposed, rendered dome and faces north. The brick-constructed icehouse has an overall depth of 5m and an internal diameter of 4m, with two doors to the entrance passage. There are remains of a floor structure which rested on a 0.1m ledge at the spring line. It was probably built in the 19th century. (3)
