High prices achieved at Northwold dispersal sale
22nd December 2023
A dispersal sale at Northwold in south-east Norfolk, resulting from the retirement of the Eyles family from farming and engineering, featured a wide selection of extremely attractive lots which achieved excellent results for the vendors. David Williams was there.
The sale was arranged by Brown & Co. “It was a pleasure to be instructed on such a genuine dispersal sale on behalf of the Eyles family who have now retired from active farming, with the farm currently on the market through our King’s Lynn office,” explained Brown & Co partner and agri-business consultant, Simon Wearmouth. “The attraction was far and wide for this sale, which included all lots from the farming business of B A Eyles & Sons, in addition to the contents of the engineering workshop operated by brother Steven Eyles on the farm. It was complemented by entered lots from local arable and livestock farmers.
Lots which generated most interest were a Briggs Irrigation Pump, a 2010 Massey Ferguson 7480, a 2012 Claydon Hybrid 4.8m Drill, a 2003 Twose TS525 hedge cutter, a 2017 JCB 541-70 Agri-Pro handler, a Case 1845C Uni-Loader skid-steer, and a 2014 Ford Ranger XLT, as well as two vintage tractors – a 1956 International BTD6 Crawler and a 1963 Fordson Super Major. One of the included lots – a 1999 Fendt 515C tractor – also far exceeded expectations.
Lots sold found new homes across East Anglia and as far away as Cornwall, the Scottish Highlands, across to Kent and well into Wales. “The family was very happy with the results achieved and overwhelmed by the number of supporters and well-wishers at their sale,” confirmed Simon.
