About Us

Wilfords started off business producing hand crafted timber products, In 1934 the then owner, H. Wilford, decided to sell the produced items by auction on a Thursday afternoon when it was "half day closing" in Wellingborough.

Since then Wilfords has become an institution of the local community, and continues to hold auctions every Thursday, and remains a family business.

In September 2021 We moved to new premises! Our new address is:

9 Faraday Court, Park Farm Inustrial Estate, Wellingborough, Northants, NN8 6XY.
