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 Monday – or Tuesday when there’s a Bank Holiday. Our auctions include: weekly vintage, antique, collectables and clearance auctions; bi-monthly auctions of antiques, collectables and curios; and regular specialist auctions. Every auction is available for online bidding if you can’t make it to us in person.

You are very welcome to join us during our auction viewings in the salerooms every Friday afternoon (1-4pm) and Saturday morning (10am-1pm) or you can find our full catalogues online every Thursday.

The main salerooms are light, airy, centrally heated and air conditioned with a large screen relay of lots as they are offered for sale. And there’s an inviting café just across the corridor 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.
