A little about us

We are Richard and Kirsten Barr. We have been married since 2000. Both of us have been married before and between us we have 6 children (Kirsten: 4, Richard: 2) – all adult now and all but one living away. Kirsten’s second daughter Bryony (now in her 30s) unfortunately suffered a medical accident when she was four years old which left her seriously disabled. She is very determined, and has fought to overcome her disabilities. We are both carers for Bryony. The Apple House and surrounding property are held in trust for her. Bryony helps to run the Apple House, the income from which helps us to provide for her.

Bryony’s eldest sister Rebecca (Becky) is a neurosurgeon working in Australia; her brother Tom runs a small film business in Oxford, and her younger sister Philippa is a community nurse based in North Walsham (currently on maternity leave). Her step-sister Sophie is commercial solicitor working in London and her step-brother Nick is a Captain with EasyJet.

Kirsten is a qualified homeopath. Richard is a solicitor, specialising in medical cases (clinical negligence: www.richardbarrlaw.co.uk ). He is on the National Council of the Law Society. He is also a writer and has written or contributed to books on consumer matters. For 30 years he wrote regular light hearted articles for a leading legal journal (Solicitors Journal) until it closed. He also writes general articles about life in Norfolk, the universe and everything (including tales about our sheep!) He also broadcasts regularly on BBC Radio Norfolk as a “legal eagle” on the Chrissie Jackson mid-morning show. The slot is called - wait for it - "Calls to the Barr"! A book containing a small selection of his articles in Solicitors Journal has been published recently (The Savage Poodle). There is a copy in the Apple House for guests to read!

We both worked together for many years on a number of high profile medico-legal cases. We now both work from home.
