Bowcliffe Hall – the headquarters of the Bayford Group, which marks its centenary in 2019 – has continued to add to the number of business tenants moving into its refurbished office space, with the arrival of HIT Training.
The company has joined wealth strategist, Encore Wealth, recruitment solution specialist, Online Resourcing and property consultant practice, Fordy Marshall, at the Grade 2 listed hall, following a multi-phase £6m restoration.
Bowcliffe Hall is the former ancestral home of aviation pioneer, Robert Blackburn, who hosted world renowned guests there, including Winston Churchill and aircraft pioneer Amy Johnson.
The 200-year-old hall’s multi-phase refurbishment also features the award-winning Blackburn Wing conference and event venue and a private members club for business tenants and guests, which captures the golden age of motoring.
HIT Training area manager David Rothera said: “Being a hospitality industry training provider, what more fitting base could we have than stunning Bowcliffe Hall, with its fantastic conferencing, events, meeting and wedding facilities? Standout venues for us are the Drivers’ Club and a tree house conference and event centre in the shape of an aircraft wing.”
Bowcliffe property & development director Lucinda Jennings said: “While businesses are drawn to our unique setting as a location that makes the work experience a pleasure, there are many practical benefits too. As a venue for meetings, conferences and corporate events, the choice of facilities for businesses is unparalleled, while our wide range of services for them includes Pilates, car valeting and a running club.”
