The Ice Well and Boating House

The original ice well was built in the mid 1700s, when the well-to-do would store ice, collected from marshes around the Thames or even as far as Norway, in the winter, and would be served in the summer.

This ice well was then remodelled, by Pulhams, in the Victorian era, so that it also had a nice porch with a seat in (currently removed for alleged antisocial behaviour), with a view over the Ha-Ha.

It has also been used to store boats.
