The old Bank Vault…

An intereresting discovery was made in March 2019 whilst ground works took place, where the former Midland Bank once stood on Upper Parliament Street by Smithdown Lane and Tunnel Road.

The foundations of the bank, including it’s cellar system were uncovered having been covered over for many years. Within the cellar, the original Bank vault was also discovered, complete with it’s huge metal safe door.
