The Renewable Heritage Trust is run entirely by volunteers. Since 2004 several hundred volunteers led by the team of trustees have put in many hundreds of hours of time doing the myriad jobs necessary. Professional staff have given their time and skills free or at a reduced rate. The founders of the Trust now run a company (Mannpower Consulting Ltd) installing Archimedes Screw turbines across the UK. National recognition of our achievements came in 2014 with a Heritage Angel award from English Heritage and a Heritage Hero award from The Heritage Alliance.
The Renewable Heritage Trust pays a freelance education officer and a bookeeper through the sale of hydro-electricty generated by the two Archimedes Screw turbines and the waterwheel.
