Marlborough High Street is preparing to say goodbye to its last bank as Lloyds announce nationwide closures.

The Lloyds bank branch located at 125 High Street in Marlborough is currently the last standing bank on the town's main street.

This comes after HSBC closed its doors on Marlborough High Street in 2017 and the Barclays branch closed in 2021.

But in a recent list of nationwide branch closures is has been confirmed that the Marlborough High Street branch will close its doors on November 25, 2024.

The Bank of Scotland, Halifax and Lloyds, which are all part of the Lloyds Banking Group, currently have a combined total of 1,154 branches.

The banking group revealed this month that it will shut a total of 176 bank branches between 2024 and 2025, including the Marlborough Lloyds branch.

"Before we close any branch, we look at how our customers are managing their money and using the branch," said a spokesperson for Lloyds Banking Group.

"Most customers are now using our mobile app, internet banking or calling us instead, which means they are using branches, including the Marlborough branch much less.

"This means we'll be closing our Marlborough branch."

Lloyds has reassured Marlborough customers that after the branch closes on November 25, a community banker will be available in the area for one day a week to support customers.

Uncertainty remains over what will become of the Lloyds Bank High Street building, a historic building dating back to 1677.
