I was hoping to find ice house on the 1893 1:2500 map.Nowt there buy wonder if someone can bring it up and the position made clearer in relation to the ponds e.g south west?? etc etc.I can't make it out from the pictures either- half looks like an air shaft for the old mine that is in that area!

It is around this locationhttp://goo.gl/maps/VgWCFWhen we stumbled across it during the summer, I though it looked like an ice house rather than a mine working (not that I have much experience of either!)

Looking at that on google it might not be too accurate - I think it is closer to the Avenue Path than it seems to be on there, but it's around that location.I took a waypoint on my phone as I thought it could be a good location for a geocache.

It's been many years since the last post, a couole of days ago I Googled Temole Newsam, Secret Leeds out of curiosity before a bike ride with my sons and found this thread. Although a local, I did not know about this and it gave us something unusual to look for, a bit of mystery.

We found it very quickly and as the hole is gated now, it is much safer.
