Lloyds Bank opened in the corner premises on the Square after the First World War, and remains there to this day.

The corner premises occupied by Lloyds Bank is believed to have been a smithy, that of Mr Cann, whose forge probably occupied the lean-to at the right hand side (as you look at the building). The smithy yard would have been reached by the gates adjoining the adjoining property (which was Collins' store). Images of the thatched building from around the 1900s and 1920s. Attractive thatched building with a semi-circular window cut into the thatched roof. Lloyds Bank opened here soon after the end of the First World War and is still trading today.
