Hutchinson Scott are an independent family run firm of Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers founded in 1976 by M Philip H Scott. Coming from a Lakeland agricultural background and educated at Kendal Grammar School Philip started his employment in 1972 with Kendal & District Auction Mart as a junior auctioneer and valuer selling livestock, general antique and household furnishings. In 1975 Philip moved from Kendal to Northallerton to work for Northallerton Auctions, were he was employed in a similar role as Auctioneer and Valuer.
Always having had a great interest in the Antique and Fine Art aspect of the profession in 1976 Philip set up Hutchinson Scott. Hutchinson Scott went from strength to strength holding regular Fine Art sales and occasional General auctions in the Town Hall, Northallerton. The business also ran many successful and memorable in situ house content sales. This continued until recent times when Philip decided to take semi-retirement.
40 years on and Philip’s son Michael and his business partner Paul Hodson have taken the business forward
