A historic Grade II Listed building in the heart of Pudsey town centre is still on the market to rent – more than year after the bank which used it shut down.
Banners advertising the availability of the former NatWest Bank are now on display outside the building after the branch closed its doors in March last year.
The building – at the junction of Lowtown and Lidget Hill – is based in a Grade II Listed building, which means it must be preserved.
Agents Michael Steel have been asking for £22,000 a year rent before VAT, although they say this is negotiable.
The building has a ground floor, lower ground floor and a basement vault and the agents say it could be used for retail, office, financial, leisure or a café/restaurant.

HSBC still empty
The former HSBC Bank, opposite NatWest, which closed in 2020, had last year been the subject of interest from coffee chain Starbucks. The building, which had a guide price of £475,000 and was ‘under offer’ in spring 2022, is no longer listed on property firm Mark Brearley & Company’s website.
Last month Halifax announced it would be closing its Pudsey Branch in November.
