The Magpies Nest is housed in an old Grade II Listed Building and as such, we regret steps and narrow doors etc. may make it restrictive for the disabled but if we can help you view any goods then we will. Unfortunately the building itself is not suitable for Disability Vehicles to be used within.

Please note we do not provide Insurance Valuations and would advise you to seek the help of Independent Specialists.

So, we hope to see you soon at The Magpies Nest and trust your visit to us will be enjoyable. We anticipate you will find that special item you have been seeking, or be able to increase your collection. Browsers are welcome at all times.
