Staffordshire’s Richard Winterton Auction Group have opened a new saleroom in Lichfield.

A former agricultural barn at Hilliards Cross, Brookhay Lane is currently being restored, and the first sale was held at the venue on November 10. A second sale is planned for Thursday, December 8 to complement sales at the group’s main rooms in Burton-on-Trent.

The move follows the decision of rival company Wintertons Fine Art to move out of the Lichfield Auction Centre and operate from Bakewell and Uttoxeter.
