All Saints Church

The impressive sight of our scaffolding at All Saints Church in Ryde towering above the town. Wight Scaffold are very proud to have carried out this impressive contract for Cathedral Works Organisation (the same company that restored Salisbury Cathedral).

The scaffold was actually designed and erected by Tony taking into account the extremely exposed position, testing weather conditions and intricate nature of the repair works. Taking into account the historical and sensitive aspects of this job and others mentioned above such as Osbourne House and Carisbrooke Castle is one of our strengths and we approach every job in the same manner.
