ANOTHER highly successful property auction was held by local auctioneer Bury & Hilton with a success rate of more than 70 per cent being achieved.

A crowded saleroom on Friday witnessed a high demand for five of the properties offered, with spirited bidding throughout the evening.

The Crewe and Harpur Cottage, Alstonefield, which consisted of a former pub which in more recent years had been utilised as a house and provided three-bedroomed accommodation, but with excellent scope to extend into outbuildings, had a price guide of £300,000,.

It sold considerably in excess of this guide when knocked down at £330,000.
