Peak District, UK, 13th September 2012. (PRWEB UK) 13 September 2012
A town of traditions, Ashbourne has a fast and furious footie match to its name. Peak District Online spill the beans in their brand-new pages launched today.
All about Ashbourne. http://www.peakdistrictonline.co.uk have just uncovered the secrets and mediaeval town has kept quiet. Bringing to life the market mecca of Derbyshire, the new pages dedicated to Ashbourne, highlight the vibrant community atmosphere that makes this place so endearing. Their Peak District Villages section has just got bigger, as Ashbourne is added to the already astounding list of places to go and people to see, for visitors to the area.
"Ashbourne is a mediaeval market town with a long lovely history," explains Steve Wake, one of the directors of Peak District Online." It's a place which mixes both the old and the new. The architecture and old buildings have their own tales to tell, and the cobbled market place is home to a modern-day shopping experience, but wandering around the streets of this gorgeous place, it's easy to be transported back in time and imagine what life was like back then."
The family run company at Peak District Online have made it their mission to uncover past and present information on all the villages in the National Park. With up-to-date news and articles about the area, the brand-new pages dedicated to Ashbourne, feature stories, myths and legends, but as well as highlighting the history of the place, they mingle lots of facts about the present with people of the past. With a website attracting over 200,000 unique visitors each month, the UK's largest Peak District guide for accommodation in the area, prides itself in providing visitors to Derbyshire with anything they need to know during their stay. With more pages added on a daily basis, the website is already full to bursting with features attracting their visitors, but the team say they have nowhere near reached their peak yet.
"We have a wonderful team of researchers and writers and they are so enthusiastic about the area they work and live in. We have a list of subjects, places, and attractions which we have only scratched the surface of, and it's our aim for the not too distant future, to add them to our website," explains James Dobson, fellow director at PDO. "Our unique visitor numbers are growing every month and our Peak District cottages page is our most popular at the moment, but the villages section is catching it up quite nicely."
What started life as a small family run company now has a close-knit team of dedicated staff who make it their mission to uncover all there is to know about the Peak District and pass it on to their readers. Not only that, but the directors are budding photographers and their images are scattered throughout the pages breathing life into the imaginative text.
"I've adored working on Ashbourne with our writer, and being able to indulge in my hobby at the same time is really exciting," says Steve." I'm so lucky to live in this glorious part of the world. Taking the photographs took on new meaning, once I had read the information that I knew was going to go on pages dedicated to this village. It's such a hustling, bustling place, full to the brim with pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops but at the same time, it's easy to find little nooks and crannies to be able to get a little bit of peace and quiet if you need it."
