Nottingham Building Society's Thetford branch

Sitting on the A11 between Norwich and London, Thetford became an overspill town for the capital city after World War Two – something which boosted its population substantially. It is home to the headquarters of the British Trust for Ornithology and was the birthplace of philosopher Thomas Paine, a statue of whom can be seen on King Street – holding a quill and his book Rights of Man, upside down.

Our Therford branch is based in a central location on King Street, close to cafes, a pharmacy and clothes shops. Whether it’s helping you open one of our many savings accounts or chatting about estate planning, our team of staff are ready to help. They can also assist with finding a mortgage through our mortgage broker service, provided by Nottingham Mortgage Services, or help you with home insurance.

Services available at our branch include:

  • Building society
  • Mortgage advisers
  • Insurance
  • Estate planning
  • Financial planning

Bite-sized fact: The external scenes for BBC TV series Dad’s Army were filmed in and around Thetford. The Dad’s Army Museum is located in the town and a Captain Mainwaring statue can be found sitting on a bench by the Little Ouse river.

Thetford is located near: Brandon, Bury St Edmunds, Dereham, Ely, Fakenham, King’s Lynn, Newmarket, Norwich, Swaffham and Watton.

Our services


Our mortgages are great. But depending on your circumstances there may not be one that’s just right for you. So when you come to Nottingham Mortgage Services for a mortgage, we’ll search over 50 lenders to find a deal that is.


ISAs, fixed rates and easy access accounts, or savings ideas to get your little ones started. We have a range of savings accounts to suit everyone. We're also one of only three building societies to offer a Lifetime ISA - our award winning account is a great savings account available to those between 18 - 39 years of age saving for their first home or retirement.


Through our partnership with RSA, we provide home insurance and landlord insurance. Their Take Your Pick insurance frees you to build a policy that covers the things you love, while only paying for what you need.

Future planning

Families are everything so it’s important that they’re taken care of when you’re no longer around. We offer help with inheritance tax and life insurance provided by Wren Sterling as well as funeral plans provided by Dignity.

Financial advice

Having a sound financial plan in place is a great help in reaching your goals and aims! Wren Sterling can help you through any financial puzzles, providing financial advice to help you achieve what you want with your money. Wren’s advisers can discuss your whole financial picture - investments, protection, retirement planning and more.

Thetford branch in the news

Hats the way to help the community!

An appeal to the people of Norfolk to donate hats for a local homelessness charity resulted in boxes full of warm clothing.

Kind-hearted locals visited our Thetford, Dereham and Fakenham branches to drop off knitted items, or donated wool for others to knit hats with.

The haul of hats was presented to St Martins Housing Trust for them to distribute to those who need them. The charity helps homeless people in Norwich and Norfolk build a better life by offering housing, support and care to the most vulnerable.


Gift of time for local foodbank

Customer services consultant Megan Colley captured the essence of festive giving by volunteering for a local foodbank.

Megan (right of pic) spent three hours in a local supermarket collecting food donations for Thetford Foodbank from kind-hearted shoppers.

Under our Doing The Right Thing for its Communities initiative, we pride ourselves on supporting local good causes that fit with our ethos, predominantly in the areas of homelessness, financial education and literacy and employability.

Megan said: “We regularly fundraise for the foodbank, however we also feel it’s very important to give time as well as much needed funds, and that’s why I was very happy and proud to spare a few hours to help. The people of Thetford were very generous.”
