I want to use a linked field e.g. Company type is a current client or not, and display current or not as appropriate in the Contact records belonging to that Company.
I've set this up and it seems to work, but next I want to prevent the field from being changed at Contact level. I understand if it is changed at Company level then it will be propagated to the Contacts but if it is changed at Contact level it doesn't do anything in reverse. Hence we want to stop users from accidentally changing it at Contact level.
I tried doing this by making the field read-only at Contact level, but then that breaks the link - if you make the change at Company level it doesn't update the Contact!
Any ideas how else to do this?

Unfortunately, this cannot be done. It may be possible through a third party addon, but I am not familiar with one.
