Video Transcript

My name is Melanie, and I manage Crafts in the Valley, an arts and crafts business that specialises in delivering workshops primarily to adults in textiles and fused glass. We relocated here about five or six years ago, having occupied a couple of different units since then. We discovered this location through word of mouth on Facebook and sought a local, rural setting with essential amenities, such as ample parking, due to the frequent visits we receive at the teaching space. The accessibility and rural charm of the location are ideal for our studio space.

Our workshop attendees consistently praise the setting, appreciating the easy parking and accessibility via public transport, with Mytholmroyd train station just a ten-minute walk away. The surrounding nature, including the hills and changing seasons observed through the trees on the site, significantly inspires the creative work I do.

Previously, I had to commute to Bradford for my old job. Now, whether I walk up to Thornber Business Park or drive along the track, I feel profoundly grateful to work in such a picturesque environment, rich in nature. Sightings of woodpeckers and deer in the fields contribute to a sense of calm and relaxation, which is vital for my work environment.

Having a unit at Thornber Business Park, positioned higher up in the valley, affords more light. Moreover, the location provides a sense of security, particularly against the risk of flooding. The provision of equipment and vehicles by Julian and his team ensures quick clearing of snow, enabling both myself and my workshop attendees to access the site even during severe weather conditions, eliminating any concern about accessibility.

The suitability of this space for my business has significantly contributed to its growth, transitioning from a relatively small venture to occupying a much larger space. This expansion has allowed me to welcome more workshop attendees, supporting the development of my organisation. Now, I can afford a larger, more comfortable space that enhances the professional image of my business. Many of my workshop attendees remark on the appealing grounds and the large windows offering views of the hillside. The value for money and the positive impact on my business’s profitability further affirm the benefits of our location.
