About Castleton Financial PlanningAbout Castleton Financial Planning

The name Castleton comes from the Old District. Castleton itself is now an integral part of Sherborne, although it was once a separate borough, with it’s own court its peculiar rights and liberties.

Castleton from its founding in Norman times and for several centuries thereafter, lay apart from Sherborne and, as it’s name implies, was an isolated adjunct to the great 12th Century Castle built by Bishop Roger of Salisbury.

Castleton Financial Planning offers a range of services backed by knowledge, expertise and experience. Whether you are concerned about your eventual retirement or simply feel you are paying too much tax, we can help you find ways of making the most of your money for both the present and the future.
