National award for Haddon Hall

The commitment of staff at Haddon Hall, in Bakewell, in utilising its historic building and helping to bring history to life for visiting school children has paid off with a national award.

The Sandford Award for Heritage Education was presented in recognition of its tailored tours.

The assessors found that its programmes were delivered by well-trained and knowledgeable professional guides who made imaginative use of the building to enhance their stories.
