Colin Graham Antiques

Cocker Bridge, 43 Market Pl, Cockermouth CA13 9NF, UK – 01900 824418

We have visited Colin for many years now, every time we visit the Lake District, he's a cheerful man with a pleasing manner, never pushing for a sale, the shop is well stocked with all manner of antiquities upon which Colin is most knowledgeable.

Worth a visit just to look round to see the amazing stuff that is piled up in there. Fascinating bloke to talk to and so many interesting things to buy.
