Dated plate on hoist

I was recently in the roof spaces of St Albans Abbey to inspect hoists. We found this working hoist there that was last inspected by Geo. W. King in 1964.

  • These hoist were built to last ! I am probably biased as I worked for the company that built for 23 years but proof is in the pudding as they say and believe I have also seen this hoist. I think it is located in what the abbey call the cock loft along the side of the abbey.I have examined it as part of my job as an engineer surveyor in the past for its statutory examination under law.
