When the Chapelfield Veterinary Partnership opened the Brooke Veterinary Surgery equine clinic it wanted a heating system with significantly lower running costs than its five other practices, which are all run on oil fired boilers. The Partnership extensively researched the possible options for heating systems for the new build development near Norwich. Vitocal ground source heat pump (GSHP) and 400 litre buffer vessel was used. This would provide the high volume of hot water required during surgery hours and maintain a consistent temperature in the building for the animals and their owners throughout the year.

The Grade II listed 18th century watermill is situated on the picturesque River Stour. The river was originally diverted to feed the millpond and water was controlled by a sluice gate under the property, where the original millwheel is still housed.

The owner, knowing that his 20 year-old oil-fired heating system would need replacing before too long, had been thinking about using the river water as a heat source.

Tenant farmer Joe Green and his wife Debbie wanted the house’s heating system to use environmentally-friendly technology, consistent with the Duchy’s commitment to sustainability.
