There really is a lot to see at Henry House.

Starting with water, by adapting to deep flow guttering (which has been cleverly woven from the front to the back of the house to capture every drop of water ), water recycling has been dramatically increased – saving as much as 50%. Harvested rainwater is used to refill the pool every week.
 
With 6 toilets on site and over 200 flushes a day, every flush is from recycled swimming pool water, enabling them to grey water recycle – all achieved through easy DIY and experimentation. 
 
Rolf has also created his own digital watering monitoring system that captures every aspect of the water levels and flow within their current water tank system. 
 
The large flat roof installation of Solar PV & solar thermal creates a return of over £1000 a year and helps reduce energy costs.
 
This property and business is a shining example of what is possible with a bit of imagination, courage and conscious thinking.
 
There will be activities for children, including art and an eco competition, free bananas for those who cycle, freebies and displays from Southern Water and Operation Watershed.  
 
Tea and cakes will be available.
