Following the recent announcement indicating a likely end date of lockdown  restrictions in England, we expect to be re-opening to the public the week commencing April 12th – and have rescheduled our Spring Antiques and Fine Art Sale to April 14th-April 16th. We’re excited to welcome clients back to our premises!

In the meantime, we remain closed to the public, holding online only sales with Click and Collect collection procedures – which have been working extremely well.

We have two more auctions until “Re-opening” – our March 19th-31st Decorative Interiors and Household Timed Sale and our April 1st Interiors Live Webcast Auction, which will feature a large garden section.

For all our sales, you can view illustrated catalogues and bid online from the safety and comfort of your home by visiting .

We are accepting goods for sale via third party couriers only on a pre-arranged basis - please contact the office to discuss selling with us.

You can collect goods purchased from our timed sales by pre-arranged click and collect time slots only - please contact the office to book your collection time. Alternatively we are able to pack and post your item or liaise with a courier of your choice.

We continue to be offer valuations for sale, probate and insurance purposes and are happy to help you. We are offering limited home visits (where Covid-secure environments are possible), together with live and pre-recorded video via all major social media outlets such as WhatsApp and Instagram, as well as via Zoom and traditional email. 

In addition, we are still able to arrange house clearance and removal work. 

We are determined to continue to serve our community during this difficult time, whilst operating safely and according to government guidance. 

Thank you for your continued support and please stay safe and well. 

Looking forward to welcoming you back – not long to go now!

Best wishes
