EnergyMyWay Stratford, Warwickshire Helps Local National Trust Property to Become Greener

EnergyMyWay Stratford, Warwickshire is helping Mike Beeston, Building Manager at the National Trust?s Hidcote Manor Garden near Chipping Camden in the Cotswolds, to formulate a plan to remove oil from the Estate?s energy requirement by 2015 and achieve a 4% year on year reduction to the estate?s carbon footprint.

EnergyMyWay Regional Director Steve Wilkes believes this is a fantastic opportunity to help a local historic property to achieve their renewable energy goals.

Historic properties such as this, which is a Grade 2* listed building, require unique and innovative solutions if they are to benefit from renewable energy technologies due to the need to maintain the property?s individual character with minimal impact on the structure.

The Estate has a mixture of buildings ranging from the historic manor house which also houses offices and accommodation for the estate?s student gardeners, a separate gift shop and café, estate workers cottages including a large farm house, vehicle store/workshop, exotic plant house and growing greenhouses.

Mike Beeston has already made great efforts to ?Go Green? installing an anaerobic digester to produce fertilizer for the garden, an impressive spring water fed irrigation system and a recycled vehicle washing facility for the estate tractors and mowers.
