Worked here in the 1980's when my children were small,the building now is used by 'Thrive' who help people with disability/learning difficulties.

Remember going into that bank with a little green money saving box that looked like a book.All the transactions were done in ink and there was blotting paper on the big wooden counters.Always liked this building.I wonder if the clock is still ticking?
