As an integral part of our estate, Sedgemoor Auction Centre opened its doors in January 2008 after a one year build program. It is sited adjacent to a prehistoric animal gathering site which lends itself to this purpose built, privately owned auction centre we visit today. This auction centre replaces Highbridge and Taunton livestock markets as well as offering businesses, shops and offices a base and modern facilities to the local community. The auction centre was built after an initial survey conducted by the Regional Development Agency which recognised that original livestock markets had outgrown their town centre locations, and there was a need to move to a location on a regional scale. However the historic links to the community was to be strengthened by offering rural and local businesses a platform to promote themselves under the banner of regional rural businesses from within the auction centre and surrounding area.The auction centre is partner-managed by Greenslade, Taylor & Hunt As well as hosting the livestock market Junction 24 is a truly flexible space offering facilities for conferencing and meetings, music and entertainment, and exhibitions. With a dedicated Events & Conferencing Team we can offer a level of service that can deliver simple venue hire or a high level live show with all of the technical support and infrastructure required, including lighting, sound, staging and seating.
