COMPLETE! Blaby Ice House works finished

Restored to its former glory after more than 25 years, work on the historic Ice House at Blaby District Council’s Bouskell Park, Blaby, has been completed.

Work began on the Ice House last autumn and included the installation of a new retaining structure, rebuilding the tunnel entrance, as well as a new door and dome cover. Railings, landscaping of the area and signage were also included as part of the extensive redevelopment.

First built around 1843, the Ice House allowed the wealthy residents of nearby Blaby Hall to have a more varied and exclusive diet with ice from the next door pond.
