Bagshaws Response to COVID-19

To all Bagshaws Clients

At this very difficult time the health and safety of both employees and clients is paramount and we would like to thank you for your co-operation over the past few months with regard to the measures that were necessary to put in place in response to the Government guidance on Coronavirus.

All of our offices are now staffed but with the exception of Bakewell, Leek and Buxton, they are operating with an appointment only system.


All telephone lines into the offices are being answered as usual and you will be directed to the person you wish to speak to, should they not be available, you will be redirected to someone who can help with your query. We aim to provide the same continuity of service as you have always received from Bagshaws.

All of our Partners and the majority of our Surveyors/Rural agency/Farm Office team have work mobiles which you are also able to contact them on, details are on our website and also on email footers.

All planned meetings with more than two people will be minimised as much as possible and in preference may take place by conference call. Should a physical meeting be of an urgent or necessary nature, please understand that our team will not be shaking hands in the usual way, keeping the meeting to a minimal length of time, maintaining at least a 2m distance and using rigorous hand hygiene techniques to mitigate against the transmission of COVID-19.

Estate Agency

Our Estate Agency offices at Leek and Buxton, trading under Bury and Hilton are open as usual and have been made COVID-19 secure to protect our employees and clients.

Our Rural Agency offices at Bakewell, Ashbourne, Uttoxeter and Penkridge are by appointment only.

A mask must be worn on entering the offices and the use of hand sanitiser is required.


Our rentals and lettings team is fully operational, if you have any queries please contact the Leek office as usual.

Livestock markets

The livestock markets are operating but with additional COVID-19 measures in place. It is essential that those attending the market follow the guidance clearly displayed at the market. Masks should be work at all times by vendors and purchasers and social distancing observed.

Any changes to the market timetable will be published on our Facebook page and website.
