The Norwich Building Society was established to help its members to buy homes.
The Peterborough Provincial Benefit Society was founded at the local Corn Exchange. Its aim was to enable members to build their own homes.
The first branch was opened, and a year later the name was changed to the Peterborough Building Society.
The Peterborough Building Society and the Norwich Building Society merged and became Norwich and Peterborough Building Society (N&P).
N&P merged with Yorkshire Building Society.
