MRS Training & Rescue Yorkshire give English Heritage a helping hand

Look North

A team from our Yorshire training centre yesterday volunteered to help English Heritage by venturing into the keep of Conisbrough Castle with a team of English Heritage volunteers. They were wanting to record graffiti etched into its walls over the last 850 years and they couldn’t get down there without our experts who made it safe and accessible.

Billy Gundry, Operations Manager at MRS Training & Rescue’s Yorkshire centre said “it is great to be able to support English Heritage in this way. When we were approached to assist, we quickly understood the hazards and risks from our mining and confined space experience, and were happy to help. We are the obvious choice due to our history and expertise in this area. Our roots are firmly in this region as our first station was established in Tankersley in 1902.  We are delighted to be able to give something back to this area and helping the volunteers access the well in a safe manner.”

News of this was featured in the Yorkshire Post.
