Heading into our third century of auctioneering, we’re a friendly auction house based at Junction 36 of the M6, which is easy to access from Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire.

Our purpose-built offices and salerooms are part of the J36 Rural Auction Centre and they house a team of experts and support staff who thrive on the buzz of live auctions. We all work hard to make your experience of buying and selling at auction easy and enjoyable.

We hold an auction every week. Our auctions include vintage, antiques, collectables and clearance; collectors’ auctions; and regular valuers auctions such as music, jewellery, silver, military, coins, textiles. Every auction is available for online bidding and runs in a timed auction format.

You are very welcome to join us for auction viewings in the salerooms, currently by appointment only (Monday to Thursday), or you can find our full catalogues online every Thursday. Please call 015395 66201 to arrange a viewing appointment.

The main salerooms are light, airy, centrally heated and air-conditioned. We’re hoping the inviting café just across the corridor will be open again soon for brews and a slice of something nice or a quick lunch break.

There’s a large car park, which is free for our customers to use, so loading and unloading is easy. We also have secure storage on-site to keep your items safe before they’re sold.
