The Society opened a Market Drayton branch in 1974 – three doors down from the historic site we now occupy in High Street.
We moved in 1995 to our present premises, which locals may remember was once Cunningham’s fruit and veg store.
It’s a listed building, lying within the market town’s conservation area, and when we refurbished the branch in 2011, we worked closely with Shropshire County Council’s conservation experts to ensure the work was in keeping with the area.
Market Drayton is affectionately known as ‘the home of gingerbread’, and the old town bell still hangs from the nearby ‘Butter Cross’ – a memorial to the baker’s shop fire in 1651 which almost destroyed the town.
Visiting our Market Drayton branch is simple, whether you are coming via public transport, or driving into town, you will find that our branch is convenient.
There is parking close by on Frogmore Road which is about 2 minutes from the branch.
If you are travelling in by bus, there is a stop outside the branch with the local circular 301 bus stop 1 minute walk from our front door.
Dan Nutt, our Branch Manager in Market Drayton has been with the Society since 2014. Dan has previously worked in our Cheadle branch and provided cover across the network. He moved to work in the Savings team at our Customer Service Centre in 2017 and was appointed as Branch Manager in June 2019.
