Accessibility lift specialist Panova has completed the installation of a new lift at a historic country manor.
The Kingston Upon Hull-based firm designed, supplied and installed a permanent hydraulic lift to allow less-abled people access to Waddesdon Manor.
The two-stage lift will enable visitors with mobility requirements to enter comfortably through the main entrance to the house along with the rest of their party, with no need to wait for temporary ramps to be put in position.
Panova’s lift sinks into the floor so that it is hidden when not in use, in keeping with the National Trust property’s Grade I listing.
General manager of Waddesdon Manor, Simon Wales, said: “We are delighted that our trustees approved this significant investment in Waddesdon’s accessibility to improve the experience of arrival at the house entrance and we look forward to welcoming all visitors during the forthcoming season.”
