A free tour of Halton Mill (http://www.haltonmill.org.uk/), an environmentally friendly and ethical business hub at Forgebank in Halton.
Electricity comes from our solar panels and Halton Lune Hydro. Heating is provided by a combination of solar thermal, pre-heating the water, and a large biomass boiler fueled by local wood chip. A new super insulated roof, new doors and double glazed windows have been installed on the Mill to increase the building’s airtightness and heat retention.
This tour is part of our Green Open Homes afternoon. There will also be
- a tour of the Lancaster Cohousing project
- the opportunity to chat to Forgebank residents in their own ecohomes
When & Where
