A Pottered History

CP Walker & Son is one of Nottingham's longest established businesses


The Company was founded back in 1896 by Charles Potter Walker, principally to manage properties that had recently been constructed by members of his family. The Company diversified into insurance soon afterwards, originally collecting premiums from shopkeepers along Beeston High Road and from the traders at Nottingham's Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market.

& Son

The designation "& Son" was added to the company name in 1926 when Philip Arthur Walker was made a partner by his father. Philip Walker took over the helm in 1931 and in particular expanded the company's Insurance department, becoming an underwriting member of Lloyd's in 1954. In 1956, Charles Philip Walker became the third generation of the Walker family to join the business. Charles Walker has been the Managing Partner since 1968 and is responsible for the running of the firm's Property Department.

Family Tradition

The family tradition continues into its fourth generation, with Dan Walker being appointed as a partner in January 2004 to enhance and further develop the specialist commercial property division.

Dynamic Partnership

More recently, Jonathan Taylor was appointed to this dynamic partnership in January 2008, in recognition of his development of the Residential Lettings Department which he continues to oversee and manage.

"I recently concluded my 2 year tenancy at a property managed by CP Walker and I can say that my experience with CP Walker has been a very positive one. The staff members that I dealt with have been very responsive and ensured that my requests for repairs were attended to very quickly. Even towards the end of my tenancy, I was kept notified of viewings well in advance. They have been very professional from the signing of the contract up until the handing over of the keys and I am delighted to have enjoyed a hassle free tenancy in one of their properties.
