WallWalkers Rope Access - English Heritage Conservation

Welcome to one of the UK's prominent rope access heritage companies

We established our family business in 1988 as a specialist rope access heritage company. Our IRATA qualified team work at height for the conservation of  England’s historic buildings and listed architecture.

WallWalkers came under new management in 2015, whereby the rope access company relocated from Hereford to Bristol. Over the years, WallWalkers has evolved to become one of the UK’s leading rope access companies. We’re host to a wide mix of maintenance skills and services, allowing us to tackle a variety of tasks. The conservation of England’s protected buildings and listed places of worship lies at the heart of our company. We demonstrate this best by our attention to detail and great pride in the quality of our work.

Many clients consider contracting a scaffolding company for their maintenance works. However our rope access service provides a cost-effective alternative for such high level repairs, often to the great relief of our clients.

Past client testimonials:

“Asking WallWalkers to carry out the work represents a much better alternative to paying for scaffolding. The list of buildings and projects they’ve worked on in the past has also impressed us greatly. Seeing the team hanging off the tower has generated a lot of interest and comment in the village. Their rope access service is far preferred to having the tower covered in scaffolding!” – Holy Trinity Church, Bristol.

“WallWalkers are a great firm I’ve inherited here at Blenheim Palace. They worked calmly, left the locations tidy and clear and did not require additional support from our staff. They have been very approachable for staff and visitors interested in what’s going on. The exercise has proven invaluable in protecting our visitors and aiding the forward planning of stone repairs. Thank you WallWalkers and I look forward to the next annual visit. Very happy to recommend to others.” – Blenheim Palace
