The Ice House on the Blickling Estate (now owned by the National Trust) dates from the 18th century. It is of typical construction; a circular brick-lined chamber with a short valuted entrance tunnel. The entrance is flanked by two (later?) brick built piers, possibly added as a decorative feature. The entrance, as is almost always the case, points to the north to minimise the penetration of sun which might warm the contents.
The ice house is within a small plantation known as Ice House Plantation and is across the Blickling Road from the main house. It is not as conveniently located for the estate lake, which lies on the other side of the house. The structure, which is grade II listed, can easily be visited although the chamber itself is closed with a locked gate.
