Ice house, The Lawn, Swindon

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Once part of the Goddard estate and used by the lord of the manor for storing ice derived from lakes nearby. It is now fully blocked up, which was not always the case; I can remember it being open in the 1960s. The roof is not original.

Thanks Bob. There's another ice house on the other side of Swindon. I'll try and get a pic next time I'm out that way.
