Additional Information

Born and brought up in Nottinghamshire. Had a conventional educational pathway. Initially trained for Chartered Accountancy, but left at intermediate level to support a family business. Switched in 1977 to go to College of Law and qualified as a solicitor in 1979.


Initially was an assistant solicitor, then a partner in a practice in Mansfield.

Moved to live at Home Farm, Brooke in Rutland in 1995 and set up my own legal practice in 1997 in Oakham specialising in Property, Land and Agricultural Law, retiring in 2018.


Will have been married for 50 years in 2023, and have three sons, all of whom have left home, with only one now living in Rutland. I am delighted to be a grandfather to two lively grand-daughters.


As a family we have always been involved in various disciplines of equestrianism and I have a particular interest in National Hunt Racing.
