1 Lisa Foster; Foreword By Patrick Nuttgens
Access to the Historical Environment: Meetings the Needs of Disabled People
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 1997; 1873394187 / 9781873394182; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; Charles Glen 
Access for disabled people in historic settings is more than just a temporary ramp over the front steps for a wheelchair user. It is a commitment to create integrated use and enjoyment of historic monuments for everyone, including people with mobility or sensory impairments, older people, parents with small children, or those temporarily disabled as a result of illness or injury. This book examines flexible and pragmatic solutions to improve circulation in buildings by overcoming level changes, addition of handrails and other facilities which achieve the basic goal of dignified access, and which protect a building’s special architectural character. It features practical guidelines and illustrated case study material, with examples of how to improve access in different types of historic buildings including Georgian, and neo-classical buildings, historic monuments, country houses, gardens and landscapes.
