---------------------------------

We are trying to make travel between the 8 Kleen Eco Open Building locations in the NW of Herefordshire as simple as possible and many are within walking distance of each other.(As this one is) A shuttle transport service may be available between the more distant Kleen events depending on demand.This would allow you to start from the public car parks or bus stop in Kington,  Mill Street.

Please contact Gordon Coppock at least 2 weeks in advance, via kleen@live.co.uk or via 01544 232722 if you would like to make use of this transport so that we can organise it.
