This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.

Twelve homes in the Bridport area and five around Lyme Regis (along with one public building) will be open to the public 12 - 14 September 2014 to demonstrate renewable energy and greener behaviour in the home.

Intriguing materials which can be seen include traditional lime and hemp plaster, straw bales as load-bearing walls and thermafleece wool as insulation. Solar heating, photovoltaic (PV) panels, and off-grid living are also on show. 

Whether you are planning a new building, improving your current one, or picking up useful tips to cut down your fuel bills, you can talk to the people who have done it about what they wish they had known before they started! This needn’t be expensive – cutting out draughts and insulating your home can pay for itself in a year, and the savings will continue year after year.
