IT IS very sad that once again we seem to be losing part of Dunmow's history, presumably because the freeholder now wishes to sell the land for more faceless buildings.
One hundred and twenty-one years worth of auction trading and cattle markets before that will be wiped off the map for good.
My son is nine and has spent many a happy hour browsing through the items for auction and has become very interested in auctioneering himself, sometimes leaving circles in the auction book around items he wanted me to bid on!
His interest was followed by the lads in the auction house and they even invited him there when he was older to see how things were run and maybe help out. Obviously he too is now upset that this will not happen.
