Welcome to Armstrong Watson

Gibbons Partners, Russell Thwaites, Philip Holdsworth, Tony Hindmoor, Mark Stanger & Steven Kirkbride have all joined Armstrong Watson along with 52 colleagues and will continue to provide a full range of services to existing clients, from current Gibbons offices in Cockermouth, Workington, Whitehaven and Maryport.
