Harrison Coward, Ulverston

The parent company, Ulverston Auction Mart PLC was originally formed in 1877 and traditionally employed auctioneers from Messrs Alfred Coward and Sons, Land Agents and Auctioneers to conduct their weekly livestock sales in Ulverston.

In the late 1920s the parent company purchased Messrs Alfred Coward and Sons and thereby expanded their expertise into the land agency and rural property sphere. In 1935 a further expansion took place with the acquisition of Messrs F J Harrison & Sons who specialised in urban properties and specialist antique furniture sales.

In 1975 these two companies amalgamated into Harrison Coward with the result that their joint client base was able to benefit from the wealth of expertise and experience gained in 133 years of dealing with urban and rural property and estate management.

The whole company is now under the guidance of Mr Ian Walker FRICS, FLAA, a Chartered Surveyor and Auctioneer with some 37 years of experience in all aspects of land and estate agency matters. He is assisted by Mr A Bruce FIA (Scot) Est, FLAA and Mr Matthew Wilkinson MRICS in Single Farm Payment/Enviromental Scheme applications.

The management are ably assisted by Mrs Kath Marsden, Mrs Claire Shuttleworth, Mrs Rosemary Walker and Mrs Nancy Cowsill who deal with market appraisals, residential lettings and customer care. Mrs Janet Grisdale heads the Accounts Department.

Harrison Coward provides a full and professional service for customers moving house from the initial appraisal through to mortgage/Home Buyers reports, assistance in house clearance etc.

With such a well-qualified and dedicated team working on your behalf, you can be certain that Harrison Coward will ensure you benefit from our modern marketing approach coupled with traditional values.
