Newburgh: the old ice house
Newburgh: the old ice house
The mouth of the river Ythan was, until recently, the location of a commercial salmon fishing station. This odd looking building is the station's ice house where the fish were kept cold until they were ready to be sent to market. The main part of the ice house lies under the dome and consists of a huge granite-lined chamber dug deep into the ground. Back in the 19th century the chamber was packed with ice collected locally in winter or, believe it or not, brought by sea in huge blocks from the Arctic.
