Plans are underway for a church in Bradford with Grade I listed status to have its closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems updated.
Considered one of the city district’s finest structures, the Saltaire United Reform Church on Victoria Road is on its way to having several CCTV devices fitted around it. The Bradford church is part of a larger World Heritage Site, and in 2020, it was awarded financial support from the government’s Places of Worship Security Scheme Grant.
A spokesperson for the church commented that its ambition was to use the awarded funding to execute and update the site’s CCTV system, stating:
“A modern security system is essential in such an important listed building.”
The church was originally constructed in 1859 by Sir Titus Salt and is considered by experts as a notable example of the Italianate style of religious architecture. Accredited with designing many of the city’s finest buildings, the church was designed by Bradford-based architects Lockwood and Mawson, and it contains a mausoleum where the Salt family, along with Sir Titus, are buried.
From sites of historic significance to commercial enterprises, buildings requiring a security system installation in Chester, Bradford and other UK cities will find they’re well-served by qualified electricians. Up to speed on the latest security innovations, they can fit any solution efficiently and advise on the best option available to answer particular concerns.
If the application made to Bradford council is successful, seven cutting-edge cameras equipped with infrared technology will be installed around the building, six positioned externally and one affixed inside.
