Up on the hill, is the ice house. Actually listed and used to be where the big house stored the ice to add to the wee dram of whiskey of an evening or perhaps during the summer, ice cream could be made.
Just up the hill is Leicester North Services, the ambulance station, the Fire headquarters,Travel Lodge and even a park and ride.
