Great Big Green Week: Trelissick renewable energy tour

Posted in Events by Lauren Webb on 30th May 2023

The Great Big Green Week is a national celebration of community action tackling climate change and nature loss. Come and take a tour of our renewable energy system and the ground source heating that has transformed Trelissick.

We have had a ground source heating system installed at Trelissick which supplies heating and hot water for Trelissick house, cafe, barn and the second-hand bookshop.

This renewable energy system has replaced our oil boilers that have been here for many years, thus reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.

Come and join us on a tour of the outside of the house and parts of the house that rarely get seen to get an understanding of how our new ground source heating has transformed Trelissick and reduced our emissions output.

Tours are on 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 June at 11am 12noon, 1.30pm and 2.30pm and will last approximately 30 minutes.

The tour is for a max of 10-12 people and spaces are available on a first come first served basis. Normal garden admission apply, admission is free for National Trust members.
