Walkways for the famous Bletchley Park
Located in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, stands Bletchley Park, an estate mansion built in the 19th century. The mansion is most famously known for accommodating heroic code breakers during World War 2 and is now used as an exhibition centre and as the National Museum of Computing. The attraction draws thousands of visitors each year.
Total Protection Group was approached by our longstanding client, Edwards Surfacing, to install almost 900 square metres of Resin Bound Gravel pathways and to resurface the main entrance area. Our solution needed to be hardwearing enough to withstand the attraction’s hordes of visitors, while not jarring with the traditional aesthetic of this historic monument.
We approached the job in two phases to minimise disruption to visitors and staff. Applying a 3mm Silver colour blend laid to a depth of 12-16mm, along with 140 linear metres of 6-10mm Danish Quartz along the borders, we created a surface that was durable, low maintenance and visually stunning.
Our clients at Edwards Surfacing and all those at Bletchley Park were delighted with the finished results – as was everybody at Total Protection Group. We are proud to have done our bit in helping preserve this fascinating piece of history so that people can continue to enjoy it for years to come.
