Anderson & Garland

Anderson & Garland is an auction house in Newcastle. It was established in 1840 as a consolidation of two businesses in the North East of England – Anderson Son & Hedley and Atkinson & Garland.

In 2005 it moved to new premises in Westerhope, just outside Newcastle, and in 2017 the firm changed hands after Julian Thomson and Fred Wyrley-Birch bought out the previous owner Andrew McCoull.

Among the major estates the saleroom has handled over the years are the contents of Swarland Hall and Lampton Castle.
