    Is there a loft ladder? I can't see one on the visible short side and there can't be one on the other short side as it would extend into the bath. I presumed a normal ladder would be used.

    How much the open hatch is in the way will depend on how much space there is and where it is, we can only see a small bit of the room. But in any case I would have thought it better to have the hatch as out of the way as possible, not just for climbing up and down but for handing things in and out.

    That style of loft hatch is removable, instead of using the hinges to drop open.No need to adjust or move anything.

    Shorten the Rad Hanging Brackets by about 25mm , if you don’t mind it running towards the Wall just alter the top Brackets , they are more than likely Chrome on Plastic

    Regards

    I also had this problem, or something similar. It didn't come as a surprise, I wasn't left with any options.
    Moving the hatch would have been a massive faff.
    I simply broke the plastic parts of that cover the 'hinge' part.
    This mean that I could push the hatch up and remove it entirely when I needed access.
