History

Holmesdale Building Society has been in existence since 1855 making it one of the UK's longest established Building Societies. Whilst over much of its history the members have been mainly local people, we have widened our area of activities over the last couple of decades with members in many parts of the country.

The Holmesdale and other Building Societies are mutual and are run for the benefit of their members, unlike banks who also face the demands of shareholders. At the Holmesdale, our continued commitment is to put the interests of our members first.
