Saturday 9 August - The Dorset Day Out: keeping the bills down

Published by Alexandra Wax on 26 July 2014

This is a day trip, run by Wiltshire Community Land Trust, to Worth Matravers in south Dorset to see the community-led Roman Barns scheme that provided local individuals and young families with homes they can afford to live in and run. It features homes designed from scratch to be energy efficient. Find out how Worth Matravers CLT (Community Land Trust) achieved this, and got to do an archaeological dig, too.

There's also an optional diversion to Bourton near Gillingam at the start of the day, to see how air source heat pumps, solar PV, underfloor heating and LEDs have all been used in a 1970s terraced home to minimise energy bills.
