The first flurry of snow has fallen on the Chapel and the nights have drawn in, but the plummeting temperatures will not affect the staff and visitors to Rosslyn this year, as this is the first year for a very long time that the Chapel has a proper heating system installed.
Our new Biomass heating system has a boiler situated underground in the main car park which pumps hot water through a series of underground pipes into the new visitor centre and the Chapel.
The temperature inside the Chapel should remain between 16-20 degrees at all times and will ensure that the congregation, visitors and our staff will feel much warmer this year than in previous years. It also operates in a conservation setting, ensuring the correct temperature and humidity to protect the Chapel stone and carvings.
The Chapel remains open throughout the winter months, and only closes to visitors on December 24th, December 25th, December 31st and January 1st.
