At the end of November, the crane from Bodley’s Court at King’s College in Cambridge, was intricately removed from site.
With only inches to spare on some parts of the route, the crane was successfully navigated across the historic campus before being collected from King’s Parade.
A trackway was laid from site across the Back and Front Lawns, past the famous Chapel and through the gatehouse (part of the Wilkins screen to the front of the college. To minimise disruption, the exercise took place in the early hours of the morning ,with a number of staff on hand to ensure the process went smoothly.
The renovation project on this historic student accommodation, has seen the old roof replaced with Collyweston slate from the original mine that had closed in the 1960s, reopened for this project.
