Notes about this historic site

1 Ice house marked.
2 The ice house is concealed beneath a mound of earth about 2m high. It is a substantial red brick dome-shaped structure about 9m in depth. Access has always been by ladder only and the entrance has now been blocked off with a solid door and railings. Ragley Hall was built in 1680-90, so the date of construction of the ice house can probably be determined. The building is in good condition.
