Croome Park Ice House



Sue and I spent most of the morning walking around Croome Park, Worcestershire, a National Trust house and gardens. If you've not been, you are missing a real treat, beautiful gardens and an interesting house with loads of history.

The highlight for me was the newly opened Museum showing development of Croome as a secret radar research facility during WW2. However the image above is of the quaint thatched ice house. Regular readers and followers will know that I produced a series of similar buildings for an article in Miniature Wargames and this was a beautifully restored buildings that was just crying out to be modelled.

I love Croome Park - it's a favourite place for a family day out in our household. Haven't been since October so haven't seen the exhibition yet - something to look forward too!

Thanks for the lovely review Tony! And definitely do let us know if you do end up making any ice-house models, we'd love to see them!
Best,
