    This morning I have thought: why don't we just run a load of copper pipes in a wall then plaster over (in particularly for houses which have an extremely low heating requirement and therefore wouldnt need much)

    Your previous thread on the subject might be a good place to start:

    There is no talk in that thread of dumping copper pipes in the wall?

    Why copper and not plastic pipes - as I understand it burying copper in concrete isn't a good option long term - Plaster may not be much better for copper.

    1. you want heat output at lowest point in the room?
    2. copper will corrode in the wall?
    3. occupants will pierce the copper with nails / screws / fixings?
    4. leaks?

    Re Uponor they dont sell it in the UK so it would rely on an import of some kind. I've emailed Finland

    I think polypipe do a 12mm UFH heating pipe which could probably be plastered in if you don't mind going "off label". Being 12mm, you'd want to split it into a number of shorter runs, plumbed in parallel to reduce pumping losses, and maybe use an EWI reinforcing mesh over the top for extra safety.
