Low Carbon Village project

Insulation seems to be a hot topic at the moment.  The National Trust’s Low Carbon Village project in Coleshill, near Swindon, will feature on the BBC's Countryfile programme on Sunday 13th February. 

The village of Coleshill, part of the National Trust’s Buscot and Coleshill Estates, is one of two villages taking part in the joint National Trust and nPower Low Carbon Village project. Part of the project at Coleshill involved a large programme to install sheep's wool loft insulation in 53 properties during the winter 2009/2010.  

In the mean time, here at Morden Hall Park the builders have worked out the best way to cut the bales of hemp insulation that will be used to insulate the pitched roofs in the stable yard down to size. Apparently you need to use an electric carving knife.
