I have over 40 years experience as a surveyor with Ordnance Survey, resurveying and revising large scale maps and associated data at 1:1250, 1:2500 and 1:10,000 scales, including surveys for Her Majesty's Land Registry.


During this time I was seconded to the government of the Republic of Indonesia as an adviser on Survey Standards and Validation, and as a trainer of Balinese government surveyors in the revision of large scale mapping by ground graphic survey methods.


My experience included the interpretation of aerial photography for survey and mapping purposes.

I was later employed by Astrium, (formerly Infoterra Limited), part of European Aeronautic Defence and Space, (EADS), and now part of Airbus, on the interpretation of satellite imagery and remote sensing data for the mapping of world-wide areas of conflicts and natural disasters

I retired from Ordnance Survey holding the post of Chief Surveyor and Production Group Manager for Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Rutland.

I was the lead member of a team of Expert Witnesses trained by Bond Solon Training to represent Ordnance Survey in the civil courts in litigation over map interpretation of boundaries and Rights of Way.  This work involved investigations and research, the writing of expert reports, and verbal evidence in the witness box.  

 have also advised the police and HM Customs on behalf of Ordnance Survey in criminal cases.

I am fully conversant with the requirements of the Civil Procedure Rules Part 35 (Experts and Assessors) and the associated Practice Directions and Codes of Practice.

I am a vetted member listed in the UK Register of Expert Witnesses.

Ordnance Survey has withdrawn from corporate involvement in this field of work and I am consequently available to undertake Expert Witness and consultancy work as an individual.

If my experience and expertise can be of use to you in an advisory capacity, or in preparation for civil or criminal litigation I am available for a free 10 minute discussion without any obligation.
