Former Trustee Savings Bank

This former Savings Bank is located at the south-east corner of the Market Place in Allendale. It is dated 1873 and built in a 17th century style. The Trustee Saving Bank (TSB) Act of 1976, subsumed independant trustee savings banks into a new regional structure of TSBs. Later TSB became a national organisation and the TSB merged with Lloyds Bank in 1995. The former bank building was later used as a gift shop. Now it appears to be a private residence. The building is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England. The building is inscribed:
