Stannah Weaves Tailored Lift Access in UK’s Oldest Silk Mill
A Stannah Platform Lift is weaving tailored access throughout Whitchurch Silk Mill, a Grade II*-listed Georgian working watermill undergoing a £2.1m regeneration into a fully accessible, industrial heritage attraction.
Built in 1815 and sited on the River Test near Winchester, Hampshire, this historic mill weaves silk fabrics using 19th-century machinery. One of just four working silk mills in the country, it is the only one open to visitors.
As such, accessibility is key to the mill’s ongoing Preserving the Fabric project, a Heritage Lottery Fund scheme focused on the mill’s sustainable future via conservation, repair, extension and new build works.
Working in a heritage site
With three floors of facilities to access, an access lift was essential, with Stannah the provider of choice to supply, install and maintain it. However, Environment Agency and Natural England constraints made installation problematic, as the lift shaft had to project over the River Test, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, without the supporting structure interfering with the flow of water.
Stannah came up with a design solution comprising a projecting shaft structure supported by struts on the mill’s exterior, river-facing wall. By reducing the headroom, this shaft structure blended effortlessly with the roofline.
The lift itself was supplied and installed in its own structure which eliminated the need for a dedicated lift shaft, with the integral structure tying into the internal walls without interfering with them.
Adjusted door openings and lintel heights on one floor further ensured that the lift fitted its allotted aperture.
The lift interior features a ceiling with light and timer, simple push-button operation, grab rail and intercom. Call buttons are located on the approach wall, and the neutral aesthetic is complemented by a glass viewing panel in the main door.
An established Stannah footprint
This wasn’t the first Stannah lift product to serve the premises. Its predecessor was a long-serving Stannah stairlift. But, with the upgrade and increasing footfall, this single-person people-mover bowed out gracefully to its 4-person replacement—as Mill Director, Sue Tapliss, comments:
“We had three rock-solid reasons to specify a Stannah platform lift: Our beloved stairlift had delivered long, reliable service—thanks to Stannah’s outstanding customer care. Critically, Stannah was the only company that could deliver a bespoke solution to accommodate the installation constraints of the Environment Agency and Natural England. We also favour working with local companies and are reassured by Stannah’s lengthy pedigree in opening up heritage buildings to people of all mobilities—an important consideration when it comes to meeting the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.
”We are committed to delivering disabled access, with the lift playing a key role in our access policy—which is best summed up by one of our lift’s many appreciative users!"…
“As a disabled person, I appreciate all the Silk Mill does to make us able to see so much…”
As with all Stannah lift products, the Stannah platform lift is covered by Stannah’s comprehensive lift service plan, which includes four service visits in the first year, with continued lift maintenance by the Southern England branch of Stannah Lift Services, part of a nationwide network providing comprehensive lift servicing and support.
Stannah Lifts Rebuilds Access in Restoration of Chapel, Royal Victoria Park
The Chapel at Royal Victoria Country Park is open to the public following a £3.5m restoration—with access for people of all mobilities supplied by a Stannah passenger lift.
Opened by Queen Victoria in 1863, this Grade II* iconic building is the last remaining element of the British Army’s first purpose-built military hospital. Ravaged by fire in 1966, it has been fully restored thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund and Hampshire County Council.
The 8-person traction lift is Equality Act 2010 compliant and complements stair access to bring freedom of movement between three floors for people of all mobilities—from wheelchair-users to bag-laden buggy-pushers.
From the ground-floor reception and free exhibition to the first-floor viewing gallery and second-floor tower access, the lift ensures that everyone can appreciate the Green Flag Award-winning Chapel’s former role as a spiritual focus for not only the wounded from the Boer War and both World Wars but also for the people dedicated to rebuilding them.
Situated in an existing stairwell, the lift had to be installed within Historic England guidelines: the guide brackets could not be fitted to the Chapel’s historic walls, so the lift was supplied and fitted within Stannah’s FX structure—a cost-efficient, shaft-within-a-shaft solution that overcomes such obstacles.
This BS 9999-compliant evacuation lift plays a vital role in an evacuation strategy by a designated warden for those less ambulant. As such, an emergency intercom system and backup power supply afford maximum reassurance.
Efficient performance couples with pleasing presentation—from the satin stainless-steel car doors and hand rails to the laminated-sand interior walls, downlighter bubble ceiling, silver half-height rear mirror and non-slip floor.
Stannah Marketing Manager, Jo Monro, comments:
“The Stannah passenger lift installed as part of the Chapel’s restoration illustrates our capability to deliver access solutions to niche sectors throughout the UK, including Historic England listed buildings and the constraints this may impose.”
As with all Stannah lift products, this Stannah passenger lift is covered by Stannah’s comprehensive lift service plan, which includes six service visits in the first year, with continued lift maintenance by the Southern England branch of Stannah Lift Services, part of a nationwide network providing comprehensive lift servicing and support.
