Duckett Building Services, Cumbria & Lancashire

Putting down roots at Clawthorpe Hall

In 2004, the potential of a significant investment was realised with the acquisition of the Clawthorpe Hall Hotel, near Burton-in-Kendal. Following extensive alterations and development, Clawthorpe Hall Business Centre was born, with Duckett Building Services relocating their head office to the new centre.

The current Business Centre has 18 self-contained units, conference and meeting facilities, and is home to companies as varied as Safety Management Consultants to the "Spotted Dog" pre-school and nursery which is owned and operated by Edward Duckett's sister, Claire.

Clawthorpe Hall: An exciting new venture for 2015

The next step for Clawthorpe Hall is to construct eight brand new business units on the existing site. The need for affordable, modern and flexible employment sites is very much at the front of requirements for companies in South Lakeland.

The new development has garnered both planning and development support from South Lakeland District Council, as well as attracting investment from Defra and the Rural Growth Network.

Joanne Golton from the SLDC Economic Development Team comments,

"We're fully behind what the Duckett family are aiming to achieve at Clawthorpe Hall. They're a great example of a family business who have built a very good name for themselves but have always been close to their community and the local economy. We're sure the new development at the business centre will be a great resource for more unique and innovative businesses to establish in South Lakeland."

Burton-in-Kendal is a great location. It's just a few minutes from junction 35 and 36 of the M6, the West Coast Main Line runs pretty much past our front door and the buses stop at the bottom of the driveway. Our telecoms connectivity is as good as you'd expect anywhere and the rural location make it a brilliant choice for anyone wishing to relocate their business out of lifestyle choice.
