Over the past five years, approximately one third of all bank branches in the United Kingdom have closed. Leek United is different. We remain committed to maintaining and investing in our branch presence.
However, agencies are quite different to branches, and after undertaking detailed reviews of our agencies in Wirksworth and Stone, we took the difficult decision to close them on 29 January 2021.
Our Agency Review
As part of our commitment to the Access to Banking Standard, we’ve produced individual Agency Review documents which explains the local information we’ve gathered about the agencies to inform our decision. These reviews can be downloaded by clicking the links below.

Following the decision to close agencies, we communicated directly with members and monitored feedback closely to understand the impact of the closures. A summary of the activity, our management of feedback and how members can continue to operate their Leek United Building Society account(s) can be viewed in the Community Engagement Summaries that can be downloaded by clicking the links below.
