With other offices in Hereford and throughout Shropshire, together with meeting rooms in Conwy, North Wales, Lanyon Bowdler is a full-service team of lawyers, which means that whatever aspect of the law you need advice on we have the expertise to help. 

Lanyon Bowdler Office Location

Bromyard is a market town in Herefordshire with a population of around 5,000. Located in the valley of the River Frome, it lies near to the county border with Worcestershire. 

Why Choose Lanyon Bowdler?

With more than thirty years of experience in providing legal services throughout our region, we are highly regarded throughout the industry. Lanyon Bowdler has a formidable reputation and a track record for achieving the very best results.

We understand the landscape and demographics of Bromyard and the surrounding neighbourhoods extremely well and as such acknowledge the unique challenges that can affect individuals and businesses. Particularly those based in more rural areas.

We pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming approach, which immediately places our clients at ease. The role we have as part of the community is also extremely important to us. We regularly organise training events and seminars and work closely with local charities on various fundraising activities. We are recommended by the 2019 edition Chambers UK and by the 2019 edition of The Legal 500, which says that Lanyon Bowdler is “the go-to firm in Herefordshire and surroudning areas for agriculture and private client work”.

With other offices in Hereford, Ludlow, Oswestry and Telford, together with the meeting rooms in Conwy, North Wales, we are ideally located to meet the needs of the surrounding towns, villages and rural communities. This includes the neighbouring counties of Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and Powys, and Mid and North Wales.

Business Demographics

Retail and tourism are two key areas of industry for Bromyard.

The main high street is largely made up of independent retailers that serve both Bromyard and the surrounding rural areas, playing a key role in the local economy. Retail is the largest employer of residents in Bromyard, with approximately 15% of residents employed within the industry both in Bromyard and beyond. This is second only to the manufacturing industry, which is responsible for the employment of around 17% of local residents.

The tourism industry is also thriving in and around Bromyard with an array of Bed and Breakfasts, Guest Houses, Hotels and Self-Catering accommodation available for visitors who want to experience this beautiful part of the UK. 

As a district rich in agriculture, farming also has a significant role to play in the local economy, and the area is particularly noted for its hop production, supplying breweries throughout the country. 

Culture and Social Scene

Bromyard has a lively programme of events attracting thousands of visitors each year. With festivals for virtually every occasion celebrating everything from scarecrows and town criers to music and Christmas trees, it is no wonder that Bromyard is affectionately known as the ‘Town of Festivals’. 

The Bromyard Gala, which is Herefordshire’s largest celebration of country pursuits and activities, is one of the most popular events in the borough’s calendar while the Bromyard Folk Festival is yet another cultural highlight showcasing the musical talents of both local and international acts. The town literally comes alive with songs for four days every September as pubs play host to a range of musicians and spontaneous music, the sounds of which spill out onto the surrounding streets. With the accompanying food stalls, craft market and a pop-up bar featuring real ales and ciders, it always promises to be a fun weekend. 

The Conquest Theatre is a bustling hub for the arts in Bromyard, hosting a variety of plays, films, live screenings and exhibitions, while The Time Machine Museum is a haven of television and film science fiction, displaying items from pictures and series such as Star Wars, Thunderbirds and Doctor Who.

Legal Services and Cases in Bromyard 

Agricultural issues are prevalent throughout Bromyard and surrounding areas and we represent many agricultural clients on a range of issues including disputes, farm partnerships and business structures, property transactions, commercial law, environmental and regulatory matters, and employment. We act on behalf of farmers, landowners, employees and businesses and have a wealth of experience in providing specialist legal advice on all areas of agri-law. We are proud to be one of the NFU’s recommended agricultural firms providing expert professional advice for farmers and the wider rural industry. 

Legal cases in and around Bromyard also include those overcoming personal injury. Machinery and hand tools are the most commonly reported cause of accidental work injuries and with around 10% of local residents working on processing plants or as machine operatives, the risks of personal injury at work become higher. At Lanyon Bowdler we have a worthy track record of securing substantial damages for workers injured due to defective equipment, and take pride in ensuring our clients receive the most appropriate legal advice and medical care.
