More biomass


In addition to supplying all the wood fuel needs at Carding Mill Valley, Wenlock Edge has just supplied its first lorry load of wood for the new Attingham Park heating system, which is being installed for this winter. This lorry load is part of an annual commitment from Wenlock Edge which will supplement supplies from the Attingham estate. It is conifer which has been felled as part of a programme to restore ancient woodland sites to broadleaved woodland. Once at Attingham the wood will be stored for up to 2 years to dry out before being chipped and burnt instead of the current system which uses oil. This new system will help us reach targets to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
