Methwold Auction Mart

Methwold Auction Mart





Under current government guidance, we are delighted to announce that the first auction to take place, after the lifting of lockdown restrictions, will be on Monday 19th April 2021.

We will be taking items on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th April and look forward to seeing you again.


Methwold is a village and parish in Norfolk sitting on the edge of the Fens and Brecklands. There has been a market in Methwold since Norman times, and back in the day, its main trade was dealing in rabbit pelts.

It was during the reign of Charles I that the Methwold Auction Mart was established, and still proudly operates under it's original Charter. Every Monday in the Market Yard at the heart of the village, the auction is held, keeping alive traditions that have continued through centuries.

People travel from miles around to attend, which not only presents the opportunity to bid for items, but is also a meeting place for friends to catch up, in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The auction commences at 10:30am, and with the number of lots frequently in excess of 800, will continue through the day until 5pm or later, until the opportunity has been given to bid for all of the lots. Catering is also available.

We are a close family-run business, which has been in the same hands for the last 40 years, and now looking forward to opportunities for the future. With this in mind, you are currently visiting our first website for the business, which we hope you find of interest and encourage you to come and visit us! We would be delighted to see you, and there is always the opportunity to bring in items for us to sell, or pick up a bargain from the great variety of lots that we regularly have to offer.

We also run a complete house clearance service, please contact us for more details.
