Interview on the sustainable elements of new monastery particularly the reed beds.

Sustainable North York Moors

Sustainability is something the community has long taken to heart, to preserve God's creation in all its glory.

We want a new monastery which will consume very little energy. With this in mind the following sustainable elements were built into the design

• wood chip boiler
• solar panels (to boost hot water)
• rain water harvesting tank
• solar shading
• sedum roofs
• natural materials
• excellent thermal insulation
• low energy light fittings
• new ‘A’ rated appliances
• 'passive’ main drainage
