Andrew Ashton back with the team

Andrew Ashton

Andrew Ashton (OW 1968) joined a large cast of contemporaries for his 50th anniversary reunion at Wells this year. Andrew is a solicitor and has over 40 years’ experience in company, commercial and probate law, most recently as a director of Beechwood Solicitors in Oxfordshire.

At Wells, our Living Archive recalls that he was a first hockey team player who provided a “strong attacking force” and an NCO in the Air Training Corps. He also found success on stage in the Merchant of Venice and as “a decent likeable Hardcastle” in She stoops to Conquer.

After Wells he went to Nottingham to read law and then to the University of Law. He was a partner and consultant of Herbert Gowers and HMG Law LLP.

He is a keen traveller with wife Pat and they have a son and daughter who is European Champion at Ultimate Frisbee.
