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.

Go Behind the Scenes

If you would like to know more, why not go on one of our Behind the Scenes tours that will take you behind the hoardings for a sneak peek at the historic floor as it is saved from collapse and its 891 memorial stones are conserved.
