Completed in 2017, the lift is a bespoke platform lift linking the ground floor to the Dining Hall on the first floor. Accessed from the external lobby through a new entry located in an existing window the platform is located in a smooth lift shaft rising up to floor level into the Dining Hall. The platform has no surrounds and is located in a home (not in use) position at Hall level, where it is enclosed with a decorative railing. The platform area is tiled and carefully positioned within the original timber and stone bordered area giving the appearance of an uninterrupted and original floor plane.
