IMPORTANT: one of our internal platform stair lifts is currently not working so disabled access into the Bluecoat will be via a temporary ramp (at Door 3).
Every effort has been made to make The Bluecoat building as accessible as possible, though due to the building’s historic nature it has not been possible to make the building fully accessible to all users: for wheel-chair users we provide two internal platform stair lifts (which grant access to the main lift if going to the first floor). The internal platform stair lifts take a maximum weight of 300kg, and the lift takes a maximum weight of 500kg.
The platform stair lifts and lift are therefore not suitable for large electric wheelchairs or mobility scooters.
