Free verbal valuations are available at any opening time!

Clearing out the attic or cellar, or are you just having a spring clean? Holden Wood antiques offers free professional valuations, and we love to purchase interesting items.

We are not just interested in purchasing traditional antiques, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, paintings, gold and silver, jewellery, watches, books, oriental items and militaria - We also love to buy more unusual and interesting items, such as early photographs, postcards, documents, letters, industrial items, scientific items, old promotional and display items.

We are interested in most things which tell a story or are related to local history, social history or industrial history.

Feel free to bring items along for us to look at or phone us on 01706 830803, or you can email pictures to
