AGRICULTURAL surveyor Mark Barrow has achieved a distinction in his post-graduate Diploma in Surveying.

Mr Barrow, who works throughout Cumbria for Carlisle-based H&H Land and Property, is the first candidate the firm has put through the diploma.

The former Appleby Grammar School student specialises in estate and land management, including landlord and tenant work. He says his next step is to become a fully qualified Chartered Surveyor.
