About our Fakenham branch

A market town in Norfolk, Fakenham is located 25 miles north west of Norwich and just under 20 miles north east of King’s Lynn. Accessible via the A1065 or A148, its attractions include the racecourse and the Museum of Gas and Local History - the only surviving town gasworks in England and Wales, complete with all equipment used for the manufacture of gas from coal. The name Fakenham is Saxon, possibly meaning Fair Place/Place on a Fair River, or hamlet (ham) on the river.

Our branch is prominently positioned in the town centre, on Bridge Street, close to retail outlets including a coffee shop and opticians, a hair salon and pubs. The experienced and friendly team are on hand to discuss a range of savings accounts or talk about financial or estate planning. They can also assist with finding you the right mortgage through our mortgage partner or help you with home insurance.

    “I can’t praise the branch teams enough. They are extremely friendly and professional and always happy to answer any questions I’ve got. To be part of a building society in which I know my savings are safe and secure, and where I know I will always be met by nice people who put you at ease – something they’ve maintained throughout the Covid-19 challenges – creates a great community feel.”
