Locations at Lancaster and Crooklands
We have two convenient auction sites: Lancaster Auction Mart, on the outskirts of Lancaster, and the new, purpose built J36 Rural Auction Centre at Crooklands, which breaks the mould of typical auction markets.
While livestock is a big part of our operation, we are also land agents, farm business advisors and architectural consultants. We are home to 1818 Auctioneers who are on hand to help with probate valuations, Jewellery, Silver, Furniture, Antique and Household Sales.
