Nottingham Building Society's Belper branch
Situated nine miles along the A6 from Derby, Belper has a history dating back to the Industrial Revolution, when the town started to grow and become synonymous for its textile mills. It is well known as the place where renowned industrialist Jedediah Strutt lived and worked, and forms part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. For many years, Belper was home to chocolate manufacturer Thornton’s (now based in nearby Swanwick).
Our Belper branch is in the centre of town on the corner of King Street and Strutt Street, in close proximity to shops, travel agents, pubs, cafes and a large supermarket. The expert and friendly branch team of customer services consultants and assistants, mortgage advisers and estate agents are happy to guide you through our range of building society and estate agency services, from opening a new ISA savings account or finding the right mortgage or funeral planning.
Bite-sized fact: Belper Town FC’s nickname is the ‘Nailers’, due to the town’s nail-making industry.
Services available at our branch include:
Belper is located near: Ambergate, Ashbourne, Bakewell, Breadsall, Carsington, Cromford, Denby, Derby, Duffield, Kilburn, Heage, Heanor, Holbrook, Little Eaton, Milford, Ripley, Quarndon and Wirksworth.
Belper branch in the news
Team not shy in raising cash for young athlete
Business owners and supporters across Belper came together to help our branch raise over £100 for a local sporting starlet.
Nearby companies donated prizes for participants in our coconut shy at the town’s annual Belper Games, attended by hundreds of people.
The money raised went to 400m hurdler and relay runner Alex Knibbs, from Duffield, who took time out from training to attend the event. He will use the funds to assist with the costs of travelling to training.
Alex is part of the SportsAid scheme, which The Nottingham has supported since 2013 and helps young athletes achieve their aims.
A contribution to school’s next chapter
A Belper primary school was able to turn a new page – after we stepped in to help with funds to help renovate its library.
Branch colleagues attended a St John’s C.E. Primary School fete and ran a penalty shoot-out where people could take spot-kicks against building society mascot Robin Hood.
For children it was for fun, however if adults scored they were entered into a raffle and a chance of winning a hamper. That netted £70 - money which was donated to the school to put towards revamping their library.
