Inquest records Feilden death as 'tragic accident'

  • Comment
The inquest into the sudden death of Richard Feilden has confirmed that the cause of death was 'accidental'.

The founding partner of Bath and London practice Feilden Clegg Bradley died when he was crushed by a tree he was felling to use as firewood, the inquest heard.

He was working in a glade behind his home in Warleigh near Bath on 3 January this year at the time of the accident.

The Bristol inquest heard that Feilden's wife Patricia found his body trapped under the 12m-long section of tree while out searching for him in the woods.

Recording a verdict of accidental death, Avon coroner Paul Forrest described the incident as 'an extremely tragic accident'.
