The answer to why we're called 1818 is very simple. The auctioneers and valuers for the original 'Kendal Auction' M B Hodgson & Son were established in 1818 and M B Hodgson remains part of our group of companies, owned by our parent company, L&K Group.
We're all part of the same NWA team, dedicated to providing high-quality services to all our customers. Whether you are selling a trailer full of Gimmer Lambs or a family heirloom painting, you can be sure of a high-quality service.
