Lymm Hall’s Low Carbon Transformation
Take a tour of this 400-year-old manor house at the heart of Lymm which is aiming for a zero energy sustainable retrofit.
Lymm Hall, once the home of the village’s founding family, is now the offices of Ecospheric - one of the UK’s leading sustainability consultancies. This Grade II* listed building, which houses a number of ancient scheduled monuments, is being carefully retrofitted with the aim of achieving a zero energy renovation. Research shows listed buildings and those in conservation areas have a significantly lower uptake of energy efficiency measures. This project will bring together experts in heritage and the built environment to ensure this Elizabethan-era manor house, and other historic buildings, will play an important role in meeting the UK’s targets for a sustainable and zero carbon future.
On this tour, participants will learn about the history of the hall from guides at the Lymm Heritage Centre, followed by a tour of the hall led by Ecospheric’s director and principal sustainability consultant. for more details about Lymm Heritage Centre go to www.lymmhic.co.uk
