Details

PAINSWICK HOLCOMBE SO 81 SE 2/135 Cockpit at Yew Tree Mount GV II Underground cockpit. Dated 1830. Squared limestone, covered with earth and planting; externally a large rustic vermiculated stone spans an opening letting some light and air into a stone barrel-vault rectangular space about 5 x 4 m, with a recess above to the 'window', and approached by long barrel vaulted pass- age with flight of steps. Small, and uncharacteristic in shape, but locally known as the cockpit, and not likely to have been an ice-house because of pro- vision of light and ventilation: the entrance is said to have been originally concealed within a garden store.
