The status of a study for a European Spallation Source (ESS) is reported along with a description of the reference design. The design of the 5 MW, 1.334 GeV machine is dominated by the need to keep beam loss at a low enough level to allow hands on maintenance for most areas. All accelerator sections are designed to be far away from space charge limits. The design allows scraping of the H- Linac beam in all three phase planes (horizontal, vertical and momentum) prior to injection into the two accumulators. Key elements of the R & D programme that will validate the design are identified.
