Founded in 1901, W&H Peacock have been conducting weekly auction sales in and around Bedford for over a century. Our Newnham Street salerooms are among the largest in the country and sell anything from a tray of bedding plants to a Range Rover, JCB’s to Georgian chairs.

Company description
It’s amazing what our valuers find in the most unlikely places. A while back we were asked to clear a property – a fairly routine instruction for W&H Peacock. We always check lofts and cellars as you never know what to expect. But in the garden stood a woodshed, and hidden amongst the garden paraphernalia was an interesting looking marble head, a mere 9 inches high.
When our expert examined the bust it was found to be Roman and dated back to the 1st Century AD. It was put up for auction, sold for £2, 600 and we had another very happy customer We won’t ever forget the full-size coffin or the chest of drawers, which shyly revealed a secret compartment containing several hundred pounds in cash. We uncover some great things during off-site valuations too.
There was the penny farthing bicycle, found hidden behind a pile of old boxes and a 1934 Austin 7 discovered in a pigsty.
