We are delighted to be hosting an event in the Beechenhill Haybarn on 7th November 2013- all about Ancestral Tourism.
Ancestral Tourism Course
Malcolm Gallagher (Chartered marketer, business mentor, sales & marketing coach in the tourism & hospitality, food & drink sectors) Director of BizVision Ltd, CEO of The Executive Scorecard Company, and Joanna Terry, the inspirational and entrepreneurial head of archives at Staffordshire County Council are running a full day course for Staffordshire businesses here in the Staffordshire Peak District.
He and Joanna have designed an easy way for visitors to Staffordshire to access their hidden family histories and the course at Beechenhill will enable local businesses to help their guests find their way.
Stay at Beechenhill Farm
Here at Beechenhill we take history really seriously! Have a look at our ‘timeline‘ and you will see. We have organised our website to help our guests as much as possible have a look at our Ancestral Research page- Discover Your Roots
Staffordshire, Derbyshire and the Peak District are great places to look into your personal heritage and family history. The beautiful Peak District National Park is so close to many cities; Manchester, Sheffield, Derby, Stoke-on-Trent, that you can stay in the lovely countryside while researching your roots in the city.
We have lots of families to stay who are researching their family histories, and it’s very exciting to hear how they get on each day, it’s like our own ‘Who do you think you are’ programme! We’ve had visitors from USA, New Zealand and Australia whose families originated here in the Staffordshire Peak District. The family of a wheelwright emigrated to Australia from Beechenhill Farm in the mid 1800s. His Australian descendants, after much research, came to stay here in the late 1900s!
We have a wonderful small Costume Museum just up the road www.hopehousemuseum.co.uk Visits are by appointment, but you may discover what your ancestors wore!
Run your Course at Beechenhill Farm
We host small eco events on our organic farm and would be delighted to welcome you and your event into the Haybarn at Beechenhill Farm.
