Part of a former Cumbrian bank will go under the hammer next month.

Landwood Property Auctions will offer the ground floor of the ex-Barclays Bank in Alston at its online auction on October 2.

The branch on Front Street closed in 2015 and the ground floor retail space is now available for someone to move in.

The minimum bid for the space is £27,500.

The 793 sq ft retail space includes a main sales area, interview room, bank vault, toilets and a staff kitchen.

Kate Lay, director at Landwood Property Auctions, said: “The bank used to have such an important stature in the community that it is a really great investment for someone looking to establish a presence in the local area, or as a place to rent or develop."
