The nearest Lloyds for Wickersley customers will be on Wellgate in Rotherham town centre.

A review undertaken by Lloyds found that 142 customers used the branch regularly in the 12 months to July 2022.

Rother Valley MP Alexander Stafford said the closure was a “bitter blow” — adding: “I believe banks play a key role in high streets and should do more to support local retail and hospitality businesses.”
