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