Dunham-Bush Provides Heating to Historic Bath Abbey

Dunham-Bush Historic Bath Abbey

Bath Abbey is a beautiful parish church of the Church of England and former Benedictine monastery, sat in the heart of Bath. It was founded in the 7th century and was reorganised in the 10th century and rebuilt in the 12th and 16th centuries; major restoration work was carried out by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the 1860s. It is one of the largest examples of Perpendicular Gothic architecture in the West Country. The medieval abbey church served as a sometime cathedral of a bishop.

The abbey is a Grade I listed building, particularly noted for its fan vaulting. It contains war memorials for the local population and monuments to several notable people, in the form of wall and floor plaques and commemorative stained glass. The west front includes sculptures of angels climbing to heaven on two stone ladders, representing Jacob’s Ladder.

The Abbey has undergone many transformations and changes, and much like the city of Bath has experienced rise and falls in fortune, survived major conflicts, architectural and religious reforms, and two World Wars, but still stands proudly today as an essential place for both worshippers and visitors. Dunham-Bush Ltd were invited to supply five Series BM Fan Convector units which were fitted into the architectural wall.

Dunham-Bush worked alongside Wheelers Ltd, the contractors for this project, to produce high quality products and service.

Dunham-Bush offers a wide selection of heating and cooling products suited to a vast array of applications, which are designed for practicality and longevity, built to perform exactly to your specification.
