    I think cps who is a member of this site fixed the latest ones and probably made them too as it,s his line of work.

    chris defo put the green rock ladders there and i'm 99.9% sure it was for scarboro council as it is an emergency exit.


    not sure how we'll go on when it wants replacing ,what with all the health and safety regs :surprise: suppose it will be safer to drown then climb a ladder :cheesy:

    all you need is a circle cage welded off the ladder, this reduces the chance of falling and meets current guidlines, not to hard to fab iether :wink:

    makes it a bit awkward for climbing down with your rod though. I,ve seen cps carrying those girders and he could manage those ladders no probs :cheesy: you,ve got to appreciate those ladders though, hope health and saftey lot don,t intervene.

    I think the inshore lifeboat and the Air sea sescue chopper would get a lot more business lifting off the tourists in summer if they removed the ladders !! :surprise:

    the amusing thing is they went down the worst rope and couldnt be arsed to come up the easy one ,which my kids were climing when they were 8&9 year olds,might be something to do with the mountain of larger cans they leave behind ....... :angry: roll on winter :yes:

    your not joking was digging worms today heard a noise looked up and two idiots were sat right on the edge and it gave way under one of them he just managed to hold on but his legs were dangling in mid air, helicopter had just passed thought he would have to come back and pick a body up.
