Bisham Woods Ice House

This Ice House was built around 1760 – 1790 for storing ice for use at the nearby Bisham Abbey, which is about a 5 minute walk away. The ice house is in a perfect location, sheltered by the woods and facing into a north wind which would have helped keep the ice as cold as possible.

Great to see it was restored in 1984, and the gargoyle above the door is still in very good condition.
