The Walled Garden

A 17th or 18th century ice house in the woods, built of brick with a domed roof. Ice houses were used to store ice throughout the year (before the invention of the fridge).

The hollow 500 year old sessile oak, one of the oldest trees on the estate. With a nine metre circumference, it’s estimated to have started growing back in 1500. The tree is hollow. Dare you climb inside?
