We opened our Oakengates branch in 1983 in ‘The Birthplace of Industry’, Telford – the town named after the famous civil engineer, Thomas Telford (who designed the first suspension bridge across the Menai Straits to Anglesey).
Since then, our team have built a solid reputation for financial service – although they’re also rightly known for the quality of their home baking.
Customers are always asking when the next charity cake sale will be, and have helped staff to raise many hundreds of pounds for charity.
There’s no shortage of things to do in the surrounding area: nearby is the Ironbridge Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage site, 6 square miles of beautiful wooded valley, and no fewer than 10 museums and historic buildings.
Our Oakengates branch is found in the centre of the town and is easy to find on Market Street, less than a 2-minute walk from the Limes Walk Car Park.
We are also well served by public transport with a local bus stop which is served by the 4 and 13 routes.
If you are visiting from elsewhere in the area, the railway station is also close by – less than a quarter of a mile from our front door.
Our Oakengates team are on hand to deliver the best possible service and help you through every stage of your financial life.
For a warm welcome, pop into your local branch and speak to Samantha, Debra or Sarah to see how they can help you with your financial requirements.
