Ice Well 2100

Our project on the ice trade

With funding from the heritage Lottery Fund we have completed the most major and important part of a project about the ice wells and the ice trade. A building conservation project replaced three piers above the wells, that support the ground and first floors. They were replaced in two cases with reinforced concrete supports, clad in brick to maintain the original appearance. The third pier was replaced with brick. In addition, delaminating concrete was removed from the underside of the ground floor to expose the steel joists. These were cleaned and treated with a zinc preparation to protect against corrosion.

The rest of the project is concerned with the wider sharing of our unique ice trade heritage. in fact there are a lot of projects under the Ice Project umbrella. They include:
