Stumbled across this little museum by chance whilst exploring the pretty hamlet of Ruthwell. Wasn't sure at first that it would be particularly interesting but was pleasantly surprised to find it a worthwhile visit. The curator, a retired bank manager, was very knowledgeable and interesting to chat to. I would recommend a visit to this museum.

This free museum is well worth a visit. The talk by the lady in charge is most interesting.She starts with an explanation as to why Mr.Duncan initiated the very first Trustee Savings Bank in the UK and the history up to the amalgamation with the Lloyds banking group. Well worth a visit!
