Abseiling for Construction & Building Maintenance in Crouch End
It is not always possible to access your Crouch End 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 Crouch End
Crouch End History
Crouch End was the junction of four locally important roads. A wooden cross was erected at the junction of these roads, roughly where the Clock Tower now stands, and a small settlement developed around it. Crouch End developed as an early center of cultivation for Hornsey, and was where the farmsteads seem to have been grouped.
From the later part of the eighteenth century, Crouch End, along with most of Hornsey, became home to wealthy London merchants seeking refuge from the City. However, the area remained rural in character until around 1880. The development of the railway changed the area significantly. By 1887 there were seven railway stations in the area.
Crouch End is an area of North London, approximately five miles from the City of London in the western half of the borough of Haringey. It is within the Hornsey postal district. Crouch End lies between Harringay to the east; Hornsey, Muswell Hill and Wood Green to the north; Stroud Green and Archway to the south; and Highgate to the west.
The name Crouch End is derived from Middle English. A “crouch” meant cross, while the “end” referred to an outlying area. Some think that this refers to the borders of the parish, in other words, the area where the influence of the parish ends. Its name has been recorded as Crouchend, Crowchende, the Crouche Ende, and Crutche Ende. In 1593, it was recorded as “Cruch End”.
