Heritage tourism is big business. It is a rapidly growing industry which brings in millions of pounds.
Economists estimate that a family visiting a major tourist attraction in a small market town like Stafford will spend between £70 and £90 in local shops and restaurants.
Creating a Timeline Museum to Women’s History in the Shire Hall would put Stafford on the international tourist map and regenerate the town centre.
