Grantham MP Nick Boles paid a visit to Barclays in Grantham to mark two centuries of banking in the town.

He learned about the bank’s beginnings as Holt King and Company in 1812 before becoming Kewney and King by 1826.

Many changes ensued over the years before becoming Barclays in 1911.

Mr Boles said: “It’s fascintating to hear about the history of banking in Grantham.”
