The Furniture Hall, Cumbria

Mitchells Auction Company was established in 1873 as a multi discipline firm serving the needs of the local community as auctioneers of both livestock and furniture. Company founder Robinson Mitchell is credited with developing the first purpose-built livestock auction mart in England. The company has steadily evolved over the last 140 years and relocated its Livestock and Land Agency Divisions to an agricultural park on the outskirts of Cockermouth in 2002 to enable the firm to expand. This made way for Sainsbury's supermarket to be built in the town centre whose building design reflects some of the features of the original livestock auction mart on the site.
