Records of Alnwick Savings Bank relating to management and publicity.

Administrative / Biographical History

This bank opened as the Alnwick Savings Bank in premises at Market Place, in 1816.

In 1835 the bank moved into new purpose-built premises that were designed by William Smith in the Gothic style. However, in around 1852, the bank moved again, probably to a building in St. Michael's Lane, Market Street. Reasons for the move were possibly due to the former building's lack of repair.

In 1926, the Alnwick Savings Bank became part of the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Savings Bank, and its address was recorded in 1934 as being at St Michael's Lane, Market Street.

Several more mergers took place; in 1971 it became part of the Northumberland and Durham Trustee Savings Bank, and in 1975 it became part of TSB North East.
