I'm gonna say its an old " ice box "  Is it in a north facing bank ? and is there a " warren " near by ?

Don't know much about it mate, a fella in the village asked me if I know what it is. I'll take a walk up there this weekend and have a look for myself.

There is one in a steep bank/hill in the grounds of West Dean estate . ( it was on the shoot and the drive was called " the ice box "  ) Across the road is a place called the warren . It is now a few estate cottages but used to be used to breed rabbits for food . The meat was hung in the  " ice box " .

There is an ice box on the Audley End Estate in Saffron Waldon where we used to beat, it was a lot bigger than the one in the picture though.

We have a ( ice house ) on the estate I manage have sealed / blocked up the entrance now as lots of youths started using it as a “ smoking parlour “ I’d say it’s at least 15” square doors on a north bank as well. I used to play in it as a kid making camps and playing war 🙄. How times have changed
