Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is currently delivering a specialist Access & Safety solution at Tintern Abbey, the popular historical landmark in Monmouthshire, on the Welsh bank of the River Wye.
Tintern Abbey is a national icon — a Gothic masterpiece which became a Romantic symbol of the sublime.
It was founded in 1131 by Cistercian monks, who were happy to make do with timber buildings at first. Abbot Henry, a reformed robber, was better known for his habit of crying at the altar than for his architectural ambitions.
The abbey fell into ruin after the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 16th century. Its remains have been celebrated in poetry and painting from the 18th century onwards. In 1984, Cadw took over responsibility for managing the site. Tintern Abbey is visited by approximately 70,000 people every year.
Engineers from PTSG Access & Safety Ltd are on site to install an access ladder to the visitor centre enabling maintenance operatives to gain safe access to the roof.Bottom of Form
