Our history in Wales

Barclays’ earliest origins in Wales go back to 1827 and a bank established in Haverfordwest by John and William Walters. They went on to open branches in Narbeth, Milford Haven and Pembroke Dock, before being taken over by the London and Provincial Bank in 1872. Not too far away, the bank of Lock, Hulm and Co was established in Pembroke in 1834, and had also opened a branch in Tenby before it was taken over by the Bank of Wales in 1864.
