Full Description

1990: In the 1930s the entrance to the icehouse was blocked, and the whole is now totally overgrown. The structure is 160m from the main building. It is though that the monks dug a pond as a source of ice and constructed the icehouse, which was lined with brick (S2).

1993: New headmaster for Stoke College believes there may be a 15th century Icehouse on the grounds (S1). (mapping estimated).
