Where it all began…

It all started in 1849 when a small group of Nottingham businessmen, led by local Quaker Samuel Fox, set up the Nottingham Building Society. Our first ever branch opened on George Street, Nottingham.  It used to open between 6pm and 9pm on the first Tuesday of each month. The vision of our founder was to help people own their own home, as well as offer them a safe and secure place for their savings. 

Over the years we have stayed true to our principles of providing our customers with value, advice and choice backed by first-class service. We want the next 165 years to be as successful as the last, so we will continue to invest in the Society. We have an ambition to open more branches and look for even more ways we can make it as easy as possible for our customers to deal with us – either in branch or online.
