Work starts on Lincoln Cathedral

The Gelder Group?s Major Contracts Division are assisting Lincoln Cathedral?s own works department with the construction of a new toilet block in the courtyard to the south of the cloisters.


The courtyard is completely enclosed with the only way of transporting materials being to lift over the existing buildings and into the courtyard.


Scaffolding has been erected along one side of the cloister roof with a lift at each end for hoisting and lowering materials into position.


Gelder Group Major Contracts Director Kevin Manterfield stated that it was a privilege for the Gelder Group to be assisting the Cathedral?s own works department on this new project which would increase the footprint of the of the cathedral for the first time in a century.
