Former RBS bank in Barrow-in-Furness to go to auction

The former RBS in Barrow

The former RBS bank in Barrow-in-Furness, has been put up for auction with a guide price of £82,000.

The building will feature among more than 100 lots in the next North West Pugh property auction at Manchester’s AJ Bell stadium on 16 July.

The 4,000 sq ft, three-storey bank was closed in July 2018 as part of a nationwide branch closure programme.

Situated on Barrow’s Dalton Road, the building makes up part of the pedestrianised high-street in the centre of the town, with rail and road links close by.

The former bank has D1 planning consent, which enables the building to be used for non-residential purposes.

Paul Thompson, managing director of auction house Pugh, said: “These unique and interesting properties often come onto the market via our retail banking clients as they re-evaluate their bricks and mortar assets and expand their digital services.”

“With its spacious layout and high-street location, this property has huge potential for redevelopment and change of use.”

Established 26 years ago, Pugh is the largest auctioneer outside of London and was acquired by property consultant Eddisons in 2016. The firm’s next property auctions, featuring more than 130 properties and plots of land, will take place at the AJ Bell Stadium in Manchester on 16 July, and at Leeds United’s Elland Road football ground on 18 July.
