The name of Rothwell will always be associated with the late great Sir Joseph Nickerson and his passion for wild grey partridges. However he will also be remembered in more than just shooting circles as he was one of the most successful entrepreneurs of his generation. Sir Joseph always maintained he was a businessman first and a game shot second, as the latter would not be possible without the former. A pioneer in plant genetics and agricultural practices, this innovative countryman proved that at the time profitable farming and partridges could go hand in hand.
