Estate agent or funeral directors , bit disappointing if it is , you never know we may all be in for a treat and a mobility scooter super showroom may grace the prominent high street position.

No it certainly seems a well kept secret

It does indeed. I heard a rumour that it was a local estate agent who is going to move premises.

Sold for £369,000.

I looked in to buying it myself and turning it in to a restaurant but that price, plus the refurbishments was too much!

Just read the blurb on the site it says

1) The property will be sold subject to restrictions preventing the following uses:

• Businesses involved with money lending
• Pawnbrokers/adult sex shops
• Bookmakers or any other gambling business or outlet
• Banks/ Building Societies
• A4 users (ie bars/public houses)
• The sale of firearms
• The sale of any paraphernalia associated with illegal drugs

So bang goes the theory about a Wetherspoons, or any other type of bar A$ definition is A4 Drinking establishments - Public houses, wine bars or other drinking establishments (but not night clubs) including drinking establishments with expanded food provision.

So the only thing it leaves is a restaurant or god forbid another takeaway.

Yes, that looks the most likely, I reckon. Unless there's an established local retailer that wants to move into a more visible position - it's a nicely prominent location.

Incidentally, it seems odd that in that list of restrictions, pawnbrokers and 'adult sex shops' are bracketed together, as if there is some kind of link or similarity between them.  Maybe whoever drew up the list didn't know the difference between a pawnbroker and a pornbroker?

Love the notion in that link that another bank would be looking to open up in exactly the same place as a closed NatWest.  Because, as we all know, banks are expanding their branch network right now...

I guess the ATM explains some of their restrictions.  For example, a bookies having a cash machine outside it probably wouldn't look good for NatWest's reputation.  Even if other machines are not far away.  A bar or restaurant may have outdoor seating and that could interfere with the machine's operation - both from safety of users and from security of stocking/maintaining the machine.  And I guess reputation is also behind the sex shop exclusion.

My bet?  Offices. 

The Wetherspoons suggestion was always laughable and clearly someone making it up.  As I stated earlier, it's the wrong size.  I mean, compare the Natwest building with this recent Wetherspoons opening... https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/aug/28/new-wetherspoon-pub-ramsgate-kent-royal-victoria-pavilion

Which will be good as long as they change the machine for one which doesn't breakdown with monotonous regularity. A couple of weeks ago all the cash machines in Marple had gone on strike.

I think the RBS branch are going to change into a Williams & Glyn?

Yes you can use Nationwide for cheques, regular banking etc
