OTHER major banks will close more branches in the next few months.
Barclays will close 12 branches in England, one in Wales and two in Scotland.
Data from the UK’s largest network of cash machines, LINK, tracks any branch closure plans across the UK.
The majority of branches in the UK will close in August, although some branches have yet to confirm the exact closing date.
Barclays has announced more than 30 closures by 2023 following dozens of other closures by several major banks, including NatWest, Lloyds Banking Group and Halifax.
The closures follow a surge in customers at major high street banks turning to online and app-based banking.
Here are the latest Barclays closing rounds and their dates:
- 29/30 High Street, Windsor – August 23
- 6 Marketplace, Harleston – TBC
- 14 Market Hill, Diss – August 23
- 27 Market Hill, Framlingham – August 25
- 41 Market Place, Newark – August 17
- 30/32 Bridge Street, Worksop – August 24
- 35 Frederick Street, Birmingham – August 18
- 351/359 Soho Road, Birmingham – August 24
- 18 Stony Street, Frome – August 23
- 9 The Wall, Brecon – August 25
- 45 High Street, Biggleswade – August 18
- 59 Grove Street, Wilmslow – August 25
Many people, especially the elderly, still rely on face-to-face services, and closures will make it harder for this group to access accessible services.
But there are still some ways that affected customers can access basic banking services without having to venture to the next town.
If the most recent closure left you without a bank in your town, you should be able to do most basic tasks at your local Post Office.
You can use one of the Post Office’s nearly 12,000 branches to do basic banking tasks — but don’t open new bank accounts or get personal loans and mortgages.
Many banks also offer mobile banking, which is where your bank takes the bus to your local area whose services are normally available at your branch.
You should contact your bank to see if it offers such a service and they should be able to tell you where and when it will be parked.
Other banks use buildings such as village halls or libraries to provide mobile banking.
Banking hubs, which offer traditional sharing services, have also been set up at four locations across the UK to help bridge the gap – in Brixham, Cambuslang, Cottingham and Rochford.
In the meantime, we’ve compiled the full list of bank closures in May.
