Snorscomb Mill, near the village of Everdon, Northamptonshire, was originally built as a factory in the 19th century, although it has undergone changes over the years, none more so than its source of heating.

An increasing number of properties are utilising more environmentally friendly heating solutions, such as ground and air source heat pumps. However, this converted mill has been utilising a nearby stream for its heating.
