Beaminster Becomes an Eco Case Study

Beaminster’s low-carbon heating strategy has been singled out as a case study by the Church of England.

“St Mary’s Beaminster (Diocese of Salisbury) have recently implemented wide-reaching changes to their Grade I-listed church building with a view to cutting its fossil fuel reliance. The team involved managed to bring in renewably-powered and effective heating, well suited to the needs of the parish, all whilst maintaining respect for the medieval fabric of the church. Given the extensive practical limitations that faced the project, and the extent of carbon emissions prior to it, the result of this work can be considered a success, even if it is too early to fully quantify the scale of change.
