From Hergest Road - 500 metres from junction opposite Church there is a footpath down steps that leads directly into the chool.The Humanities building is a further 500m once you turn right at the bottom of the footpath. From central Kington , go along Park View parallel with the recreation ground until the school comes into view.

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 may be) 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.

This event has now finished.

 Not a HOME, but an award winning low energy building with :

6kWp PV, Solar Water Heating, Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) and heat recovery system

Made of a high insulated structural timber frame panelling sourced locally, it gives very high thermal insulation and has under floor heating which is a more efficient way of heating a building.

Air within the building is recycled through a heat exchange unit and automated velux roof lights have been installed to help purge any excess heat during the summer months. Its external wood finishes were also chosen for a low maintenance requirement.
