Here is a short video of our new log boiler system at Lydford Gorge on Dartmoor.
The boiler will burn around 25 tonnes of logs (from our own woodlands) every year and heat the office, the flat, the shop, visitor reception and our tearooms.
The video shows the boiler, the complex plumbing and a variety of air blowing radiators around the property. The system will also provide hot water. Part funded by Devon County Council.
The system is being commissioned tomorrow and more details will follow once it is fully operational. Previously we had a really inefficient calor gas and electric heating system - all part of our campaign to get of fossil fuel based energy.
