KLM Auctioneers has been serving the local Calder Valley community and the wider UK since 2013 with fortnightly auctions of antiques, collectables and general goods.


Since September 2019 KLM Auctioneers has been owned by Paul Whyte MA.

Paul has an undergraduate degree in Antiques and Design Studies from the University of Central Lancashire and a

postgraduate master's degree from Kingston University London in Art Markets Appraisal (Professional Practice). Being in and around sale rooms for many years, after graduating, Paul worked for five years in a busy sale room as a valuer and assistant auctioneer. Following this, Paul worked for Henry Krank in Pudsey, one of the largest millitaria dealers in the country.

When the opportunity to take over from Katherine and Andrew Lumb arose, the challenge to run his own sale room was eagerly taken by Paul. At KLM Auctioneers, Paul is  proud to continue Katherine and Andrew's legacy of low fees and a professional, relaxed and friendly sale room.
