TRENTHAM HALL ICE HOUSE
Built around the 1840’s into a sandstone bank on the north side of the Trentham estate for the Dukes of Sutherland.
The interior is brick-lined and it has evidence of three doors, the exterior has a drystone retaining wall.
Ice was collected from Trentham Lake taken to the ice house and packed tight and insulated with straw which helped to slow down the melting of the ice.
There is a metal door, but no interior doors. You can just make out the ‘pit’ which is supposedly half full with rubble.
Update 2016 - The remains of anoither ice house have been found nearby the lake. A visit is planned.
