Barclays has announced the closure of 15 branches across the country, meaning more than 100 banks will close so far this year.

The bank will close 14 branches in England and one in Wales from the end of April to the first days of May.

Locations in London, Gosport, Bridgwater and St. Helens are among those closing in a few days.

Barclays announced 15 closures earlier this month.

Barclays will close 15 of its branches from April this year, most of them in England

It comes days after NatWest said it would close 23 branches, and more than a week after Lloyds Banking Group said it would close 40 Halifax and Lloyds branches.

Natwest closures are scheduled for April through June and are the bank’s latest move to transition its services online.

In October, NatWest confirmed it would close 43 branches in Britain by 2023 – 13 have already closed this month.

The UK’s second largest lender said the vast majority of its retail banking can be done digitally and it’s the faster and easier way to bank.

At the time, the company blamed visitor numbers, which have declined rapidly since the inception of online banking and continued to fall during the pandemic.

Lloyds said the number of customers visiting the branches it plans to close has fallen by an average of 60% over the past five years.

Nationwide also announced the closure of a branch in Kingswood, Gloucestershire.

It means that the total number of bank branches closing this year already stands at 103.

Barclays has been approached for comment.
