About Us

Welcome to Beeston Auctions!

Believed to be the only Auction House in the country ran by sisters, Beeston Auction House is a family run business led by Catherine and Shelley-Anne Wilford. As former employees of Townsend Auction Galleries, we decided to take on the business ourselves on the retirement of our former employers. We hope to inject a fresh impetus on the business and have been really pleased with so much positive support from existing and new customers.

With over 20 years experience of buying, selling and collecting Antiques, Collectables, Jewellery and Curios, we aim to give you an enjoyable and worthwhile visit in a friendly atmosphere. We offer a bright and fully accessible auction room with free Wi-Fi, car parking and sale day cafe, located just off the A47 in the rural village of Beeston, Norfolk
