Southwark Cathedral - The Brief

Project Aim

Provision of new safe permanent high level access to 2no. internal rainwater hoppers in the North-West and South East corners of the Bell Chamber.


To design, specify manufacture and install a bespoke safe access system of working platforms, walkways, and stairs/ladders to provide permanent safe maintenance access to internal rainwater goods.
The installation within the Bell Chamber must therefore negotiate the historic bells and hanging frame, and respect the fabric of the building by avoiding any mechanical fixings into the stonework.
Interlink are to evaluate the safest, most cost-effective arrangement whilst minimising impact on the historic fabric.

Showing the tiny doors & staircases, 156 spiral steps and near impossible tight angles that we needed to negotiate the componants of the platform up. See The Full Gallery

Access up to the tower and into the Bell Chamber is via a historic spiral timber staircase (above) which is quite restricted in space. Careful consideration is needed in terms of materials access. There is no floor or working platform within the Bell Chamber itself only oak beams - and issues of safe working/installation will require early consideration by Interlink.

Our four man team transported all the specially designed de mounted components up through the tower, created a 10 by 6 ft mezzanine floor and assembled the platform in situ. See The Full Gallery
