Situated in the heart of the high street, our Chester-le-Street branch offers a wide variety of savings and mortgage products. The branch sits just opposite the entrance to St. Cuthbert’s Walk Shopping Centre and is easily accessible, with car parks located at the rear of the branch. Within the branch, our dedicated team of staff offer you a professional and friendly service and you can talk to a Newcastle Financial Adviser who will provide you with valuable face-to-face financial advice.

Our recently refurbished branch is light, bright and modern, though maintains the values of a traditional building society to ensure all our customers receive a memorable experience.
