Abseiling for Construction & Building Maintenance in Barnsbury
It is not always possible to access your Barnsbury building once the scaffold has been struck and using cherry pickers is simply too expensive. To put things in perspective, our abseilers can usually complete the task for the cost of hiring a cherrypicker! and that doesn’t include anyone to actually complete the work you need, it’s only the hiring cost.
If you add that to the inconvenience of trying manoeuvre a massive lorry to the work area, abseiling really does make sense. Or abseilers can reach any area of your building to assist with installations or repair an ongoing issue, be it a leaking gutter, replacing glazing, adding an expansion joint or inspecting for faults.

Facts About Barnsbury
Barnsbury is an area of north London in the London Borough of Islington, in the N1 postal district. A name is a syncopated form of Bernersbury, being so-called after the Berners family: powerful medieval manorial lords who gained ownership of a large part of Islington after the Norman Conquest.
The area of Barnsbury was predominantly rural until the early nineteenth century. By the end of the 18th century, however, Barnsbury, like other parts of Islington, was being regarded as attractive part-rural suburbs by the comparatively wealthy people wanting to move out of the cramped City of London and industrial Clerkenwell.
The area is close to the City and had strong local trade in its position as the first staging post for travelers making the journey from London to the north and with considerable agricultural traffic and cattle driving to the nearby Smithfield cattle market in the City.
Barnard Park, consisting of 10 acres including a large area of football pitches, was created in 1967 on an area of housing that had been bombed during World War Two and named after former Islington Mayor Cllr George Barnard. Pentonville Prison is located within Barnsbury.
