I did this in the end by creating two columns, and forking the incoming dataset field during dataSource.parse(). One column is readOnly while the other is editable.
Does anyone form Telerik have a neater way of doing this - my code attempts have not worked thus far.

I am afraid changing the columns' editability is not supported in Kendo UI Grid. As a possible workaround you could use the Grid's edit event and close the currently edited cell (depending on your conditions) using the closeCell() method.
