Barclays to close Sidcup branch

Barclays have announced the closure of their Sidcup branch.

It’s the latest bank closure with many major groups announcing regular closure programs.

The bank occupies a prominent corner site opposite what will soon be a new cinema and library, and opposite Prezzo on the other side of the junction.

Given the changing face of High Streets and increased footfall through the cinema, is a bar, pub or restaurant likely?

Bexley borough does have a very high number of micropubs. Perhaps another?

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Thank you
