Office Space in the Peak District Brings Boost to Rural Community

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Office Space in the Peak District is now available after a 25 year campaign by Michael Shuttleworth to bring grade A office space accommodation to the area.


Mr. Shuttleworth first initiated a major refurbishment of his family-owned farm complex, now named Hathersage Hall Business Centre, in the 1980s.  After numerous planning applications, the 18th century complex met the economic and social, heritage, environmental and planning logistics to be fully converted into state-of-the-art office space.  The development now offers unique office accommodation for knowledge-based companies in the area.


The Duke of Devonshire, who officially opened the business hub at ribbon cutting ceremony, said: “Hathersage Hall Business Centre is a unique development for the Peak District and shows the versatile options for the redevelopment of period buildings, to both generate business for rural Derbyshire and to maintain its delicate architectural heritage.”


Offering 12, 500 sq ft of space with offices from 500 up to 2000 sq ft, the ÂŁ2.3 million development is expected to attract businesses from nearby Manchester as well as Sheffield which is only 20 minutes away.


Michael Shuttleworth, Director of Hathersage Developments Ltd, said: “This development is one of the first of its kind for the Peak District and aims to provide business space within the National Park which is dedicated to knowledge based businesses.  Hathersage Hall Business Park will generate throughput of commerce, establish high-earning jobs in the village and provide sustainable income via business rents, all of which immediately benefit the local economy.  The philosophy behind this project is to use the space for commerce rather than tourism, allowing for sustainable business growth in a traditional rural setting, yet preserving the beautiful architecture that gives the region its character.”
