I was born in Oxfordshire but have lived most of my life in Yorkshire. My wife Liz and I moved to Sessay in 2003, realising a long-held ambition to buy a Butterfield house. I am very interested in the history of the village and have been a member of the History Society since its inception. Having joined the parish council in 2005 I thoroughly enjoy the challenges and experiences of helping shape the future of this community. I have always loved the great outdoors and was a keen pot-holer and rock-climber. Although  I now confine myself to walking, I completed all the 3,000 ft mountains of Scotland in 2011 and still go on regular back-packing trips to the Highlands.

I was born in Ripon and, apart from 6 years in Hertfordshire and London, have lived in North Yorkshire all my life. My wife and I moved to Pilmoor 38 years ago and set up a pig breeding enterprise which we ran for 25 years. I then spent 10 years with DuPont advising farmers on use of company products. Now semi-retired I enjoy the peace and quiet of our lovely countryside and believe our environment should be protected. My wife and I have an ongoing commitment to the community. Our three children attended the village school and my wife is a school governor.

I am a retired chartered architect and have lived in Sessay with my wife Janet since 2000; Janet is a driving force in the Village History Project and editor of ‘Essays from Sessay’. I worked in local government as a Conservation Architect for 9 years before joining English Heritage in 1999. I took early retirement in May 2019 from my last position as Historic Places Adviser for Historic England in the Northwest. I have a passion for new and old buildings, historic places and the natural environment. Sessay is a beautiful and inspiring place, full of interesting people. I am delighted to represent Sessay PC where my planning, design and heritage skills and knowledge can be put to good use helping to deliver our Community Plan.
