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:

  • Creating new spaces for all - making the Abbey more accessible by providing modern meeting, catering and toilet facilities.
  • Enriching worship - providing a more comfortable worshipping space and building a new Song School.
  • Reducing our carbon footprint - installing an eco-friendly heating system using energy from Bath's natural hot springs and installing energy-efficient lighting.
  • Repairing the Abbey floor - repairing and stabilising the Abbey's collapsing floor.
  • Retelling the ancient story - creating a Discovery Centre that will tell the story and history of the Abbey.
