Bath Abbey to be heated using city’s spring water

Stay in Bath > News > News > Bath Abbey to be heated using city’s spring water

Work to install eco-friendly heating in Bath’s famous abbey using water from the city’s natural hot springs at the Roman Baths has begun.
Every day, 1.1m litres of hot water flow through the Roman baths from the thermal spring which is located at the heart of the site. A large quantity of this ends up in the River Avon, which flows through the city, via the city’s drains. However, if this water can be harnessed and converted, it could produce 1.5MW of continuous energy and support a 200KW heated pump system.

A renewable energy company has started exploring the Roman Bath’s great Roman drain to plan how to best install the heat exchangers.

This is part of Bath Abbey’s Footprint project.
