9/75 Mr Aislabie's Kitchen approximately 10 metres south-east of the Octagon Tower

GV II

Remains of covered cooking hearth. c1730. Probably by Robert Doe for John Aislabie. Coursed limestone rubble and brick. Entrance was on the east side, with a chimney opening on the west side. Arched roof survives, but the facade has collapsed and the chimney opening is enlarged. Interior: against the west end there is a brick fireplace, part whitewashed. The structure is approximately 3 metres wide and 4 metres long. The original form was probably a rustic cave covered in turf, similar in style to the tunnel nearby (qv), and used in food preparation for elaborate picnics. It was described by a contemporary as 'Mr Aislabie's kitchen', and 'a cave for the provision of viands'. It was in fact a very early type of barbecue. W T C Walker, personal communication.
