Upcoming auction following sad death


NFFN Member
On October 2nd Thame Farmers will be holding the auction of the assets of a local lad who sadly died recently. Adrian ran a contracting business and his sale includes a number of classic tractors and equipment that may be of interest to regulars on this thread. The catalogue is here: https://www.thame-market.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Farm-Sale-Catalogue-07.10.21.pdf

The sale is at Bayford, near Hertford, Hertfordshire, around 20 miles north of Central London and mid way between the A1M and A10.

I may be able to help any TFF member who is interested in any lots by collecting and temporarily storing any purchased lots while transport is arranged if it helps as we are only 3 miles from the sale.

Thats very nice of you ,the catalogue says its on the 7th, do you know the condition of any of the items?
My mistake, you're right, it's the 7th. I was thinking of something else when I typed that. :facepalm:

I haven't much direct experience of his kit having only really seen him on the road in recent years.

I would recommend anyone should view anything they are interested in. The fencing kit in particular will be well used but sound as he was well known and respected for fencing work.
