Stroud Auction Rooms on the move
Stroud Auction Rooms has moved to bigger premises.
The increasing popularity of this leading Gloucestershire auction house meant it had outgrown the building that has been home for almost a decade. It’s now moved to the 18th century Grade II listed Lightpill Mill, where there is three times the floor space.
The much larger sale room accommodates new shelving and fittings, bigger reception area and greatly increased storage facilities and is just a few hundred yards across from the Bath Road Trading Estate.
Owner and auctioneer Nick Bowkett said: "Staff have always given a great deal of time and attention to presenting items as professionally as possible, but the increased space will allow lots to be displayed much more effectively."
Members of the public had their first chance to inspect the new saleroom during viewing ahead of the June sale which included almost 3000 lots, with specialist sections of jewellery, silver, bijouterie, watches, clock, coins, musical instruments and vinyl records
