Celebrating 170 years.


We opened our doors in 1849 to help people save and borrow. Since then, our products have changed with the times, but our commitment to our Members has stayed the same.

Thank you to all our Members for making this tremendous achievement possible!

Welcome to Saffron Building Society

We treat you like an individual to help you make the most of your finances. Each mortgage is personally assessed on an individual basis and we can help you make the most of your money with a free savings review.

So, whether you want to save, buy a home or simply plan for the future, we'll help you find what's right for you.

Always there for our members. Since 1849.
