Access Arrangements
The majority of the site is accessible for all but due to the historical nature of the Engine House access is via a small flight of steps leading to the porch and main door; there are also internal stairs for reaching the upper floors. A chair climber is available for traversing the porch steps. Click here to download our Access Statement.
