Craghoppers is proud to be the official clothing supplier for the English Heritage, keeping the staff protected from the outdoor elements all year round.
ABOUT ENGLISH HERITAGE
English Heritage cares for over 400 historic monuments, buildings and places – from world-famous prehistoric sites to grand medieval castles, they bring the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year. Every year they seek to bring the story of England to life for people of all ages and backgrounds, in the places where it happened and in the most enriching ways. From Dover Castle to the Northumbrian Coast, the friendly staff of English Heritage are passionate about their locations, sharing stories, facts and knowledge about their local site.
Gone are the days when people learned about history simply from reading books. People are increasingly looking for experiences that bring history to life in an engaging way and nothing beats standing on the spot where history happened.
SUSTAINABILITY AND ENGLISH HERITAGE
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing our historic sites. English Heritage are making changes to reduce the impact on the environment, and address issues such as energy use, single-use plastics, sustainable procurement and waste management. Through the Climate Action and Sustainability Plan, are aiming to reducing energy use, cut costs and work towards a low-carbon, low-waste future.
OUR ENGLISH HERITAGE AMBASSADORS
I am proud to be English Heritage’s very first Wellbeing Coordinator. Based at Walmer Castle and Gardens in Kent, I was brought onto the team to manage the development and delivery of a brand-new Wellbeing offer. As a qualified Yoga teacher, I’ve designed a suit of activities that utilise the tranquil gardens and award-winning learning Centre. I need to be dressed ready for indoors and outdoors so my clothing must be quick drying with assisted cooling and flexibility for me to teach exercise to the best of my ability. I love how versatile Craghoppers clothing is.
In my spare time I enjoy practicing yoga outside in nature and teaching yoga at my local gym.
I am the social and content executive for the north of England, so I’m lucky enough to work across all sites from Berwick upon Tweed down to Derbyshire. I love being involved in English Heritage’s campaigns, creating content for social media and the website. Whenever I’m at site you will always see me with a camera in hand! Getting outside or visiting a historical site is something I love doing in my own time, as well as being one of the best parts of my job. Whether that’s a walk along the Yorkshire coast or a wander along the river into my hometown of York. My trusty Craghoppers walking trousers are an essential whatever the activity! I also enjoy barre and yoga classes – they’re fantastic for mindfulness.
I am the Property Supervisor at Mount Grace Priory, House and Gardens. I am fortunate to work in a very beautiful place on the edge of the North York Moors. The priory is the best-preserved example of a Carthusian priory in Britain.
Outside work, I am a keen hillwalker, photographer and furniture maker. At home, we have a pair of young dogs who love being outdoors as much as I do; As a result of being outdoors so much I need good quality, reliable outdoor clothing that can cope with whatever the weather.
I am the Audience Development Manager delivering Marble Hill’s £5 million National Lottery Heritage Fund: Marble Hill Revived Project. This exciting project will open the house more often for free; revive the landscape and improve the facilities across the park – from the play area to the sports pitches.
I sing in my spare time at St Martin-in-the-Fields and Southwark Cathedral amongst other venues. I am a founder trustee of charity that supports a school in India on the outskirts of Hyderabad and am incredibly passionate about the important role Education, Culture and the Arts plays in transforming lives. Having completed a couple of marathons Rachel also loves a good run!
I am a volunteer monitor for English Heritage around Newcastle. I make sure that the site is in good condition and help guide visitors. I am also a translator volunteer from English to French as I am a French native! I have recently worked on a project about Hadrian’s Wall. I have always wanted to be one of the people who preserve heritage sites and bring them to life. To share my passion, I have created meetandvisit.com to help everyone to discover the North of England (and beyond!). Being a Craghoppers ambassador is amazing, as I will be fully equipped to go and explore new heritage sites and share them with everybody!
I enjoy Geocaching in my spare time.
