Gerard attended the Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester, gaining qualifications in Advanced Farm Management before joining Lycetts in 1990.
He has recently inherited the family estate in Durham and has spent the last five years renovating the let houses and cottages, which are now more in keeping with modern living!
In addition, he farms a traditional mixed arable and grass farm, with the commercial forestry coming under the English Woodland Grant Scheme. The listed family home is also a registered park and garden, while the estate encompasses a number of ancient monuments and Grade I listed properties.
Gerard sits on the Northumbria Committee of the Historic Houses Association and is a Trustee of the Rothley Trust.
“I am well versed in the joys of land and property ownership.”
Gerard specialises in advising landowners, farmers and private clients throughout Yorkshire and the north. He also runs our office near Scotch Corner and provides specialist advice to our forestry and woodland owning clients.
