The firm, which operates across property, livestock and chattels (art and antiques), has salerooms and offices across Somerset, Devon, and Dorset.

However it will leave its Taunton location, called the Octagon saleroom, by the end of the year.

The Taunton team will relocate to its Sedgemoor Auction Centre, off Junction 24 near Bridgewater. The centre, the site of monthly general antiques sales, will now be renamed Somerset Auction Rooms.

Greenslade Taylor Hunt will hold a new Antiques and Interior sale (formerly its general sale) every two weeks while its Jewellery, Silver and Watch sales will remain monthly in the new location.

Collectors, Specialist and Fine Antique sales will be held every two months. The team of eight will relocate by the new year.

Separately in Taunton, antiques centre owners Vincent Page and his wife Lesley White will open a new auction house in the town. Named Aloysius Fortescue and Smythe, or AFS Auctions, it will operate from Page’s existing antiques centre on Silver Street. Read more in this week’s Fairs & Markets.
