Some of you will have heard that they are planning to demolish the old Barclays Bank building on Broadway, Wickford, and build a five storey block of flats.
Now would be a good time to collect together memories and information about the Bank. Who worked there? When did it close etc? We have been told that an old cottage was knocked down to make way for the bank but this series of photos seems to show the cottage was still there after the bank was built and could still be there now but without the weatherboarding. These photos may help to bring back memories. Keep upto date with news on the future of these building by visiting the facebook page “Save the Wickford Broadway buildings from demolition.”

  • I remember Barclays Bank in front of what is now Aldis. I think it must have have had flats above, as a Miss Spencer from school lived there.
