The back spare bedroom suffers from what the builders called cold spots in the corner where our house joins our neighbours house.
Whilst cleaning the guttering I found that our conservetory is just where our cold spots inside are so I was unable to clean the guttering in that section and that in that section I have 6 roof tiles which have slipped into the guttering.
My problem is because of the conservetory I cannot gain access to the tiles and guttering
Though I could from my neighbour's property possibly.....except she has a veg patch just where I would need to put a ladder so no decent footing.
A cherry picker would be just the job but I cant get that round the back because of the garage.
Is there anything else I could consider that would go up and over the conservetory to gain access ?
Or what are your views on using a roofing ladder and coming down to the affected area from above ?
Any other pitfalls I should consider.

I just recently cleaned out a gutter in this situation. The whole of the rear of the property had a conservatory so no direct access via a ladder. I got there by your last option , roof ladder and coming down from the ridge. Anyone able enough to lift a roof ladder onto a roof is going to be strong and agile enough to do the job.
