The Healey Dell Heritage Centre and Tea Rooms is located within the Healey Dell Nature Reserve in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. The Centre occupies what was originally the Rangers’ office and is a short distance from the Nature Trail. It also hosts the Heritage Exhibition – a year-round insight into the fascinating history and industrial heritage of the nature reserve.

In late 2019, Lisa approached me to manage their current website, which had been built on the WordPress content management system. Through multiple conversations, it was discussed that a new website may be in order to help improve speed and security issues, as well as improve the overall design and functionality.

I created the new website to bring a modern spin on the general vintage aesthetic of the Tea Rooms. The site already used the Elementor editor, so I expanded it with custom widgets and integrations. It was connected to their table booking system to help process booking requests, and a new online menu was created. In addition, a print menu was created with a similar visual identity.

The site currently remains in development, pending client approval.
