Da Vinci Code chapel drives green thanks to Alex F. Noble & Son

Rosslyn Chapel Trust’s finance and administration manager, Audrey Jones, with Alastair Loudon, EV specialist at Alex F Noble & Son Nissan.

Alex F Noble & Son has supplied a zero-emission Nissan eNV200 van to a chapel made famous by its starring role in The Da Vinci Code.

The Rosslyn Chapel in Midlothian was made famous among movie-goers when it featured as a setting for the Dan Brown novel of 2003 and the subsequent Tom Hanks blockbuster of 2003.

Now the landmark, which attracts visitors curious about its mysterious carvings and idyllic setting, has a green addition as well as red carpet status.

It has added an EV vehicle with the help of Alex F Noble & Son.

Ian Gardner, director of Rosslyn Chapel Trust, said: “Rosslyn Chapel currently holds a ‘silver’ award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme, so working in an environmentally-friendly way is very important to us.

“Many of our business-related journeys are in the local area around Midlothian and so leasing this electric van is an ideal way for us to operate economically, efficiently and sustainably.”

Alastair Loudon, an Electric Vehicle (EV) specialist at Alex F Noble and Son Nissan, said: “We’re very pleased to see Rosslyn Chapel placing their faith in Nissan with the addition of an eNV200 all-electric van which seems to be already proving ideal for their busy daily journey schedule and saving money at the same time”.
