Monthly online timed auction

Regular customers will know that Clitheroe Auction has had regular sales of rural & domestic bygones and architectural salvage for over twenty years; previously under the brand of Silverwoods. For the last few years this has moved to a monthly online sale in conjunction with plant, machinery and equipment.

In Summer 2023 a 3000 sq ft new building will be completed to accommodate the sale of these lots in a designated space followed by its own special monthly catalogue.   All sales are held as an online timed auction through this website on
