Barnsley Building Society started life in 1853, in an office above a grocers shop in the town. The society soon became the dominant society in the local area and by the 1890s they had opened several branches to make it easier for the working class population to save their money.
Over the next century, the fortunes of the Barnsley Building Society waxed and waned as other regional societies expanded and merged with one another. By the late 1990s, the society had expanded and the brand was doing well, but heavy exposure to the Icelandic Banking crash at the beginning of the global recession left them in a vulnerable position.
In 2008, Barnsley Building Society was bought out by the Yorkshire Building Society Group. However the society has retained its distinctive branding and there are still Barnsley Building Society branches in towns across South Yorkshire.
