Production company ‘Walk the Plank’ commissioned a winch powered railed hoist to allow materials to be taken up a steep embankment and over a high castle wall. It allowed materials and equipment to be taken to an inaccessible site for the creation of a show. During the show itself a performer would also rise up on the platform appearing ghost-like before the audience.
Particular care was need to not let the structure touch the castle at any point as, as well as being a ‘CADW Welsh Historic Monument’, this Welsh built castle is much treasured. The ramp rests lightly of the embankment and the top structure flies clear over the wall.
