Our Team

Charles Castle, MRCVS

Charles is the principal of the practice, graduating in 1983 from Cambridge University.  He started his career as a vet in a small mixed practice in Herefordshire, working with a poultry specialist vet.  He then moved down to Cornwall, where he was able to hone his skills as a cattle and sheep vet, doing herd and flock health.  After working as an OV in MAFF (now DEFRA), he specialised in meat hygiene, before setting up Beech House Veterinary Surgery in 2004, to serve the pets, farm animals and poultry of Towcester and surrounding villages.

His main hobby is working on the embryo transfer project, in connection with the Rare(see links) Breed Survival Trust.   Charles also enjoys gardening and sailing and looking after his flock of Light Sussex chickens.
