Bath Abbey

Bath Abbey: gains £10M Heritage Lottery Grant – including funding for thermal spring powered heating

Bath Abbey has been awarded a major £10,7million grant by the Heritage Lottery Fund to help with renovations, realise plans for a ‘Discovery Centre’ and to make it more sustainable.

As previously reported by Transition Bath, they are hoping to use the hot spring’s outflow from the Roman Baths in the building next door to provide underfloor heating for the abbey. Their plans include additional wall and roof insulation, possible double glazing, LED lighting and solar panels.

More information on the grant here and here.
