Lloyds Bank is closing its Abingdon branch in the summer.

The bank in Ock Street is sandwiched between two Indian restaurants - the Dil Raj and The Prince of India.

It will close on July 24 and there is now a closure notice in the window.

The Lloyds Bank branch closure follows the closure of the Barclays branch in the town, which closed on February 15.

Most customers are now using our mobile app, internet banking or calling us instead, which means they are using branches, including the Abingdon branch much less."

After the branch closes, a 'Community Banker' will be available to support customers in the area one day a week.
