Doors open in Belper as we boost Derbyshire offering
More people in Derbyshire will benefit from our ‘all-under-one-roof’ offering following the opening of our new Belper branch.
We already have a presence in Ashbourne, Chesterfield, Ilkeston, Long Eaton and Matlock, and now our joint building society and Harrison Murray Estate Agency branch on King Street brings us to Belper.

Our mascot Robin joined company executives in supporting the branch team as they welcomed the first customers and there were free goody bags for younger visitors too.
Diane Walters, new locations manager, said: “Many financial services organisations are taking branches off the high street but we very much have a philosophy of giving customers the very best savings, property, mortgage, insurance and financial/estate planning advice face-to-face, all under one roof.
“With that in mind we are really proud to be in a prime Belper location and to being an integral part of the local community. This is an excellent addition for us and we are sure the people in the town will think so too when they see what we have to offer.”
Estate agency area manager Richard Bocock added: “It is really exciting to be able to build on the success we have had elsewhere in Derbyshire and to open the doors to a joint branch in Belper.
“As a proud part of The Nottingham we aim to deliver the very best across the buying, selling and conveyancing spectrum and pride ourselves on the very best customer service – always putting people at the heart of what we do.
“Belper is a very close-knit community - we look forward to being very much part of that community spirit.”
In 2015 The Nottingham’s Derbyshire customer base grew as we welcomed over 2,600 new customers. Savings accounts in the county have a value of over £35m.
The branches in Belper, Ashbourne and Matlock all boast Harrison Murray teams, offering a complete buying, selling and conveyancing service.
In 2015 branches in the county also raised £1,500 for local charities and causes including Framework, SportsAid, Comic Relief, Autism Awareness, Children in Need and Macmillan.
