SD9305 : Former NatWest Bank, Mumps, Oldham

taken 2 years ago, near to Oldham, Great Britain

Former NatWest Bank, Mumps, Oldham
Former NatWest Bank, Mumps, Oldham
The bank has now been closed for several years and the building remains disused and boarded up at ground floor level, although the "For sale" banner has gone. In November 2014 Oldham Council announced a masterplan for the regeneration of this area. This included turning this building into apartments "with café/bars and leisure". This might not be good news for the nearby Yorkshire Street, which is looking pretty run down, although it still has an amazing number of pubs and bars which might not survive further competition. Part of the regeneration included a new Marks & Spencer store which was hoped to open in 2017. However in November 2016 they withdrew.

Photographs from a few years ago (not on this site) show pleasant grassed areas including one directly outside the former bank. These have been removed and in front of the building is now a bus stop parking bay and a road.
