History of Mewies Solicitors in Skipton

The practice was founded as J. P. Mewies & Co in 1960 by Jack Mewies, operating out of 100 High Street, Skipton. The firm rebranded as Mewies Solicitors in 2007 and practised as QualitySolicitors Mewies from 2011 to 2017, before the transition to Mewies Solicitors Limited on 1st May 2017. The practice currently has four Directors and a total of 28 staff operating out of Clifford House, Keighley Road, Skipton, an impressive and historic building. Clifford House was in fact the birth place of former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Iain Norman Macleod and more recently was a GP surgery until the practice moved into the building in 1983.

Skipton (“the Gateway to the Dales”) is a bustling market town in North Yorkshire but nestles on the boundary of West Yorkshire and Lancashire. Its population is just over 14,000 and it is famous for its Castle which stands at the top of the town. In 2014 Skipton was voted the ‘Best Place to Live in the UK’ by the Sunday Times and was shown off to splendid effect when the prestigious Tour de France passed through in the same year. Nearby towns and villages include, Bradley, Barnoldswick, Grassington, Gargrave, Addingham, Guiseley and Cononley.
