An accessible toilet and Changing Places facility are the latest solutions to be brought to Croome Court, a National Trust property near Pershore.

The historic house has invested in hoisting equipment and various other aids as part of its campaign to make the property accessible for all visitors.

The Trust has also purchased manual wheelchairs, electric mobility scooters and a range of other equipment.

The all-terrain, four wheel Beamer Trampers have been purchased to allow off-road access and are designed to take visitors across rough, uneven country tracks and fields. They will also safely take people through mud, streams, snow, and even sandy beaches.

This is all thanks to Beamer’s large back tyres and smooth articulation, meaning users filter out all the small bumps and the wheels stay on the ground for increased stability.

Meanwhile, a stair climber forms a central part of the estate’s access plan and enables entry for manual wheelchair users up the sweeping flight of steps.
