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.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.

 A working family farm set up to produce tasty, healthy food for the local community (please see the website below for more information).

We have a farmhouse which ranges from 1610 to 2010, when we bought the building it had no insulation or damp proofing and the main building had 2ft thick stone and rubble walls. We have extended the building to add a  butchery and working kitchen.

The roof of the building was insulated with 10 cm of kingspan solid foam insulation, a blanket of thermal insulation  and tyvec waterproof membrane and roofed with recycled welsh slate.

As the design of the house is old and rooms were small we insulated the walls on the outside with 20 cm of Kingspan solid foam and a layer of waterproof membrane and finished with limed large overlap planking. 

The inside of the house has underfloor heating in all areas but the oldest room and has 20 cm of Kingspan insulation under the heating pipes.

The work was carried out using local architects and builders.

All windows are double glazed, space and water heating is primarily provided by wood burners.

Tea/coffee and the possibility of other refreshments, depending on numbers of people on the day
