Please Note:
Anyone going to look at an ice-house on private property should request permission. 
By the nature of many Ice houses, they attract bats, which are protected by law.
It is most important not to disturb bats during the hibernating period October - March.
It may that be some Ice Houses are unsafe, anyone visiting one does so at their own risk.
