Let there be light! Church swaps to LED to save power

Have your say

A South Yorkshire church has had all its lighting replaced with LED bulbs to save energy - and cut down on its electricity bills.

Penistone-based firm Norcroft Energy has replaced all the lighting at Cawthorne Church in Barnsley with energy saving LED lighting - which will be switched on ceremonially during the church’s Festival of Light service on October 5.

John Lees of Cawthorne Church said: “The church had last been rewired in the 1960s and rewiring was well overdue. Great care was taken in selecting light fittings that would be in keeping with the character of the listed building.”
