About Us

Dear Gramophiles & Collectors

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. After being an avid collector of gramophones and phonographs for many years, I founded Holmfirth Antiques in 1988 to supply the needs of other collectors and newcomers to the hobby. I was a professional purveyor and repairer of gramophones & phonographs and a specialist in ‘mechanical music’ for over forty years.

Now I have been fully retired for some time, and Holmfirth Antiques has now ceased trading – nevertheless I am keeping my website open so I can remain in touch with the gramophone community, and from time to time I may decide to sell machines and accessories from my personal collection.

Otherwise it just remains to wish everyone in the community well in what has been a difficult year… stay safe!

Wishing you all the best in your phonographic pursuits!
