Thank you for your feedback.

Your suggestion of installing underfloor heating would be very expensive and is not necessary.

The heating in Martyrs does not solely rely on the small desk heaters - they are only intended as a 'top up' to supplement the radiators in the Thomson Reading Room. We do monitor temperature levels daily and over the last week the base temperature has been in the 18c-20c range. Certainly March has been a cold month so far and if you do feel cold please report this to staff and we will ask colleagues in Estates to adjust heating levels.

Do not hesitate to get back in touch.
