Branch Location

Saffron Building Society's Ware Branch is well situated in the centre of the town on the High Street opposite the old Town Hall, you will easily find us, as we have the red pillar box right outside the Branch. There are a number of short stay pay and display car parks near by, and free parking if you want to park at Tesco which is just across the road. If you travel by public transport we are close to the bus stop, and the train station is only a few minutes away. Barbara and the team look forward to welcoming you to the branch.

Barbara Holroyd,Ware Branch Manager

Barbara has been at Ware for three and a half years. She went into banking at sixteen and has worked as a branch manager for three other building societies prior to Saffron. She enjoys the variety of a small branch, as she gets involved with everything. She likes being on the counter, as well as coaching staff and the daily interaction with customers.

I believe Saffron is how banks used to be – friendly and effective. It is great to be able to build up a rapport with our customers.

About Ware

Ware, in East Hertfordshire, has been occupied since at least 4000 BC. Located on Ermine Street, the Roman road from London to Lincoln, Ware was a significant Roman settlement and the foundations of a temple, two cemeteries and several other Roman buildings have been found.

The modern name of Ware dates from Anglo-Saxon times, when weirs were built to stop the invading Vikings from escaping in their longships, after their defeat by Alfred the Great. Being on the ‘Old North Road’ and less than a day’s journey from London, Ware was a busy coaching town. In the 17th century, it became the source of the New River, built to bring fresh water into London.
