Anglesey Abbey - River to heat House

The National Trust has an ambitious target to source 50% of our energy needs from renewable sources by 2020. At Anglesey Abbey we've already installed solar panels on the visitor centre, and now were planning to install a water source heat pump to heat the house and our offices in the cottage next door.
