A LITTLE-KNOWN branch of Barclays is to close in Lancaster next month.

The branch, which is hidden away at Lancaster Auction Mart in Wyresdale Road, will shut its doors for good on March 25.

Barclays bosses say the outlet, which opens on Mondays and Fridays from 10.30am until 3pm, was underused.

The branch is currently manned by staff from the main Lancaster Barclays, and no jobs will be lost.

It is one of 22 Barclays branches nationwide which will be shut in the first quarter of this year.
