Bath Abbey Footprint

What is Bath Abbey Footprint?

Footprint is an £19.3 million programme of capital works and interpretation which will provide innovative and sustainable solutions to our needs including:

  • Stabilising the ground beneath the Abbey floor
  • Tapping into Bath’s greatest natural resource and heating the Abbey  using energy from the hot springs
  • Adapting the interior of the Abbey so that it better expresses the faith and practice of the Abbey community and is more inviting for worship

  • Installing energy efficient lighting and providing storage for staging
  • Opening a new Song School for our Choirs and our expanding singing programme for local primary and secondary schools
  • Providing a modern, welcoming space volunteers and visiting choirs can, at last, spend a little more time with us and enjoy our hospitality
  • Creating 200 square metres of new space to provide a contemporary interpretation centre which will act as the hub for projects and activities displayed throughout the Abbey
