This is a "Good Life" site in that the land is chemical free for over ten years and has all the features necessary for an energy sufficient carbon neutral building. The land slopes west- south-west and is fully exposed to the sun all day. The north-east boundary is just under the brow of the hill and thus would require only a short mast to be exposed to wind from all directions. The southerly part of the south-east boundary is ideal for a reed bed to receive well aerated sludge from above.

The Pollytunnel was put in place almost ten years ago and is still covered by its original polythene. There is a good supply of manure available from adjacent stables

The wooden gardening shed was initially built as an extension to a caravan. It now stands alone at the entrance to the site and would serve as an excellent site office.
