From Great Altcar in Merseyside, Jonathan graduated from Harper Adams University with BSc (Hons) degree in Rural Enterprise and Land Management. He previously had a career in law, working as a claims’ handler specialising in road traffic accidents, before returning to his rural roots.
Since qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor, Jonathan has specialised in compensation and is actively involved with HS2 and the negotiation of compensation claims across Cheshire for water pipelines, gas pipelines, electricity supply lines and any other access to private property by utilities.
Growing up with a family involved in gamekeeping, Jonathan is a keen shot and when not involved in field sports, he enjoys playing cricket. In recent years he’s been Captain of the Tattenhall 3XI Cricket Team.
