Bennetts Solicitors move to new Wrington Offices




Bennetts are pleased to announce that with effect from Monday, 29 July 2013 we are practising from our new, larger and improved offices at Barley Wood Stables, Long Lane, Wrington, Bristol, BS40 5SA.

The decision to move has been made for the benefit of our staff, professional colleagues and above all else, for the benefit of our clients and the local community.

Our former premises on the High Street were no longer ideal for a modern and progressive law firm. We listened carefully to many of our clients who found parking difficult on the High Street, and to Village residents who found the High Street to be something of a “bottleneck” when our clients were having to park on the road and outside people’s homes.

It was the right time to make an investment in the firm and in our clients and the community, by finding suitable and modern premises but at the same time we were sure that the new premises needed to be in Wrington.  We are very pleased therefore that we were able to move to Barley Wood Stables.

Our new offices form part of the historic stable buildings, formerly belonging to the Wills Estate, with panoramic views over the Mendips. The building has been renovated and modernised to our specification to provide improved facilities to include:

– dedicated car parking

– meeting room facilities

– Wi-Fi access for clients and visitors

– disabled access

With the additional space, we can also accommodate mediations which will provide our clients with the opportunity to save the expense of venue hire.

As well as acting for clients all over the country and indeed, internationally, our firm has a long history stretching well over a century of which we are proud, of being the local solicitors for the village of Wrington and the Wrington Vale. It is our aim to continue to provide a high quality legal service for the local community as well as our clients in Bristol and beyond.
