  • Goldings was formed in 1900 by George W Golding, one time Mayor of Grantham, and Louis Millhouse. The multi-discipline practice had the versatility of being Auctioneers, Valuers, Surveyors, Estate Agents, Insurance Brokers and Railway & Shipping Agents.

    The partners were joined after the First World War by Albert Baxter and in 1931 by Bernard Millhouse, who became a partner in 1951. Every Saturday Goldings held auctions on the street of Westgate as well as those at the Old Wharf Road Saleroom. By 1966 Bernard Millhouse was sole principal of the firm at its offices at 38 Westgate.

    Bernard Millhouse was joined by C Robin Hall in 1969 and became a partner in 1971, followed by Ian J Shaw in 1973 becoming a partner in 1977.

    The influence of Robin Hall saw the building of a New Saleroom in Old Wharf Road in 1971 and the Surveying & Estate Agency practice move to 45 High Street in 1977.

    In 1987 the business was sold to the Leeds Permanent Building Society and then re-acquired by the partners in 1991.

    1989 saw the arrival of a new Saleroom Manager in Colin R Young.

    In 1994 Colin Young became Sole Principal of the Auction Department based at the Old Wharf Salerooms, the latter becoming the current Firm - GOLDING YOUNG & CO.

    In 2006 Goldings Chartered Surveyors merged with Grantham’s only other remaining long established professional firm of Chartered Surveyors & Estate Agents, Escritt & Barrell (Est. 1860) moving to 24 St Peters Hill. The partnership of Geoffrey Bishop, Ian Shaw, Stephen Short and Edward Wreglesworth form the current Firm – ESCRITT BARRELL GOLDING.

    GOLDING YOUNG & ESCRITT BARRELL GOLDING professional departments continue to provide an unrivalled professional services for the sale and valuation of ANTIQUES & FINE ART – AGRICULTURAL - COMMERCIAL – PERSONAL – RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY – PLANT & MACHINERY.
