This is what Bishops Wood is all about!
Bishops Wood is recognised nationally and internationally for its
work in environmental and sustainability education.
The main building was completed in 1994 and
was hailed as one of the foremost 'green' buildings in
Europe. Constructed of materials from sustainable sources and
those which minimise environmental impact both in production and
use. We have recently built an extension using the same
principles. We have a sedum roof and a ground source heat
pump. This area has given us an additional room for meetings,
training or classes, additional storage and a separate kitchen
