The Bath Abbey Footprint Project is a Heritage Lottery Fund project to repair the Abbey’s collapsing floor, install a new eco-friendly heating system using Bath’s hot springs, and provide new, improved space and facilities to ensure the Abbey is more sustainable, hospitable and useable for local residents, worshippers and visitors alike.

Wessex Archaeology will be working alongside Bath-based firm Emery to help deliver the £19.3 million Footprint project. Work inside the Abbey is due to start this week.
