  1. May I ask a dumb question ? In Bath , we have natural hot baths and I believe the Pump house was going to make use of this as a heat source (?); I wondered why there are no plans to exploit this as a useful accessible energy source on a larger scale, is there is reason it couldn’t be done by smart people?

    • Waters are being used to keep the Abbey warm. Unsure if you caught Countryfile the other night but they had a company using water from abandoned coal mines (20degC) with a plan to heat a new 1500 housing development. I don’t see why we can’t do something similar with the spa water but I suspect the first thing you need to do is insulate properly.
