Icehouse at Coombe Place, Offham, Hamsey, Lewes - South Downs (NP)

Late C18 ice house within the grounds of Coombe Place. The risk arises from heavy vegetation growth on the structure and partial collapse of the entrance tunnel vault. Discussions have taken place with the owners about how a repair project can be completed.
