Making a difference


Changing the climate appeal

Charlecote’s Victorian central heating system is incredibly old, inefficient, and expensive to run on oil and electricity. The patchy heating means that temperature and humidity inside the house are constantly fluctuating. These constant changes in climate conditions are not good for the collection. It can provide the perfect breeding ground for mould and pests. In 2019 we raised money to replace the heating system for a more energy-efficient, cheaper to run system that will help us to maintain and control a steady temperature and humidity for the long-term benefit of the collection and environment. This work is started in November 2021 and will continue into 2023.
