On December 1 South Downs Auctioneers opened a new office and showroom at Gosdens Heath Barn, two and a half miles east of Midhurst, towards Petworth on the A272.

A converted Sussex barn on the Cowdray Park Estate, the new venue looks out over the Downs and will be open for consignments and to view items coming up for sale. South Downs (formerly of 19 Holmbush Estate, Midhurst) will continue to hold their sales in the Memorial Hall of Midhurst Grammar School.

The new contact telephone number is 01798 860 960.
