Lloyds Bank, Catterick Garrison
Lloyds Bank, Catterick Garrison
Originally opened as an agency by Cox & Co, the London paying agents for the army, during the First World War. Subsequently rebuilt and extended several times as Catterick Camp grew and the number of men requiring cash grew with it.

Until the 1970s most soldiers were paid cash, so very large sums were kept here. Nowadays most customers use the ATMs in the extension lobby on the right hand side.

In the 1970s cars and military vehicles drew up in front of this building. Today there's a car park at the back. The pillars were originally made of wood - until a truck knocked one down. Now the replacement steel supports are protected by a resin based exterior shell - and the more recent flower bed.
