We recently sold items with an interesting local history.

1818 Auctioneers handled the dispersal sale of the late Cedric Robinson, Queen’s Guide to the Sands.

The cross bay walk has existed for hundreds of years as a more direct route from one side of Morecambe Bay to the other – for both industry and entertainment.

A treacherous and sometimes deadly path, it was guided by local monks from surrounding monasteries until the dissolution of the church. Around 1538, the Dutchy of Lancaster was appointed to keep a guard or guide for the sands.

The title has been held and passed down through the years and Cedric Robinson was perhaps one of thebest-known.

Still popular today, the cross-bay walk is now a charitable event and raises funds for various charities across the board.
