Boathouse or Icehouse
2/12 about 260 metres west
north west of Oldstone
Boathouse or icehouse. Probably late C18. Stone rubble. Single cell
cruciform - like on plan set into a bank overlooking fish ponds in
Quarryhead Wood. The front wall is slate rubble with a large round arch
opening, the head of the outer arch has collapsed.
Interior: Barrel-vaulted roof, of the back the vaulted recess is narrower
farming a cruciform - like plan. The floor is slate bedrock.
It might have been an icehouse but the opening at the front is rather large
and the 1906 OS map marks it as a boathouse.
