Just last week, Barclays announced it would be shutting 14 branches this year.

The majority of the England branches will all close in October, with some shutting their doors in November and December.

Scotland's branch will also shut in October, along with the two Welsh sites too.

Locations in Cardiff, Salford, Norwich and Dumfries will be impacted.

And just before that, Natwest revealed it would be pulling the plug on 34 more locations across the UK.

It brings the total Natwest branches closing this year to 126.

Many, particularly the elderly, still rely on in-person services and the closures will make it more difficult for these people to access services.

But there are still a number of ways in which affected customers can access basic banking services without having to venture to the next town.

If the latest raft of closures will leave you with no bank in your town, you should be able to do most basic tasks at your local Post Office. 

You can use one of the Post Office’s nearly 12,000 branches to perform basic banking tasks — but not open new bank accounts or take personal loans and mortgages.

Many banks also offer a mobile banking service, which is where your bank brings a bus to your local area that has the services that are usually available at your branch.

You should call up your bank to see if it runs such a service and they will be able to tell you where and when it will be parked.

Other banks use buildings such as village halls or libraries to offer mobile banking services.

Banking hubs, which offer traditional shared services, have also been set up in several locations around the UK to help plug the gap — including Brixham, Cambuslang, Cottingham and Rochford.
