YORKSHIRE'S ELR Auctions have moved to new bespoke premises, rebranding as the Sheffield Auction Gallery.
Over the festive period, the region's oldest auctioneers and
valuers completed the move across the city from Shalesmoor to the
former site of the South Yorkshire Police building at Windsor Road,
Heeley, close to the Derbyshire border. It marked the end of a
period of more than 12 years of continued business growth and
development by ELR since their separation from Eadon Lockwood and
Riddle Estate Agents.
Director Elizabeth Dashper said: "We had outgrown our previous
saleroom and advances in technology over the last few years, such

The company is now trading as the Sheffield Auction Gallery with
the inaugural event at the Heeley premises, a quarterly antiques
and fine art sale, on January 21. It includes a consignment of
paintings, prints and furniture offered on behalf of Museums
The auctioneers' range of specialist auction sales will also be
expanding in 2011, along with a number of valuation days planned
for locations throughout the Derbyshire region. They can be
