Event Details

Visit an interesting rural home that gets its heat from a log gasification boiler. It can be a very cost-effective way to heat your home, as the boiler can use salvaged wood and logs, unlike a pellet biomass boiler.

The owner will show you the boiler and explain how it works. He’ll also tell you about how he sources wood for it. You’ll see the facilities he has built for drying his wood.

The house’s energy bills are reduced further by using solar PV, which you’ll be able to see.

The owner has made ingenious use of recycled materials for projects around the house and garden, including an upcycled polytunnel. 

This visit is free of charge and open to anyone living in Cumbria, thanks to generous funding from the Pride in Penrith Lottery, as part of the Cumbria Green Build Festival 2017.

Location and Parking:

The postcode (CA10 1DX) will take you to the farm opposite. At the point where you would go up to the farm, turn left over the bridge and Beck Cottage is 70m up the hill. Look out for the solar panels on the roof.

Park on the grassy verges along side the beck just before the bridge, there is some space in the wood yard next to the house and in front of the house. If you can’t see a space when you arrive, stop by the house and the owner will direct you to more space.

Accessibility:

There is wheelchair access to the boiler and polytunnel. There are two steps to enter the conservatory and most of the features inside that the owner will point out can also be seen from outside.
