Norfolk the place to see green buildings

09/08/2007 - Green Building Press

West Norfolk has some of the greenest buildings in the county, according to an organisation that is fighting to protect the countryside.

A backpackersí hostel, a coastal visitorsí centre, a church, council offices and a private house are among the eco-friendly buildings and projects that feature in a list compiled by the Campaign to Protect Rural England.

The Campaign has selected 21 examples of renewable energy in action and seven of them are in the west and north of the county. Two will be open to the public for a series of free guided tours organised by the Campaign between Thursday and Sunday, September 6 and 9.

They are Deepdale Farm, Burnham Deepdale, where farm buildings have been converted into a hostel in a diversification project, and the Roman Catholic Church of the Annunciation at Little Walsingham,where a new building has replaced a 50-year-old parish church using traditional methods and materials.

Others, not featuring on the tours, but still warranting a mention include the EcoTech Centre and wind turbines at Swaffham, West Norfolk Councilís low-energy offices, Juniper House, in Chapel Street, Lynn, and the National Trustís millennium activity centre at Brancaster.

The Ternery Hut on Scolt Head Island, Brancaster, is the nature reserve wardenís summer accommodation. It is clad with Welsh-sourced cedar and is insulated with recycled newspaper and sheepís wool.

The private house is Blithe House, at Downham. It is the UKís first prefabricated German-sourced Huf House with solar heating.

Owners and architects of buildings on the tours will be on hand to answer visitorsí questions. Places can be booked on 01603 761660.
