St. MARY’S CHURCH
EAST BRENT. SOMERSET
pipe coil in Chancel
pipe coil in main Church area
Two expansion pipes at the base of the
1 inch bore
pipework at floor level of the aisle.
The heating system is the high
pressure type as designed by A M Perkins. All the
pipework in the distribution system is installed at
floor level alongside the plinth of the Pews in the
Aisles and on external walls where space permitted.
One special rectangular spiral heating pipe coil is
fitted in the Chancel. There are several low
level sinuous pipe coils sited around the external
walls of the Church.
This Perkins heating
installation is an excellent example of this type of
system, and retains on display all of its original
pipework including the double expansion pipes with its filling
and air venting points.
