Inside the study centre

Middle wood study centre is owned by Middle wood Charitable Trust and is mainly used for running environmental courses, though it can also be booked privately. The study centre is a low energy building - it is designed to make use of the sun as a heat source. Light from a low angle comes in through the long windows on the south side and heats up the central partition wall, which is made of stone and acts as a heat reservoir. During the summer, the midday sun is kept out by the long eaves.
