Including Lloyds in Wallingford, closing on January 23, HSBC in Didcot and HSBC in Henley, both closing on May 9, HSBC in Bicester, closing on June 20, Natwest in Oxford, closing on February 7 and Natwest in Thame, closing on March 1.

Lloyds said in its closing statement: "Like many other high street businesses, we’ve seen people using our branches less frequently in recent years as more customers choose to do most of their everyday banking online.

“We’re responding to the way our customers use our branches.

"We’ll continue to invest in our branch network, but we have to make sure our branches are where customers need and use them most.

“As a result, we've made the difficult decision to close this branch because customers are using it less often.”

HSBC commented on the closure of the Bicester branch: "We continually review our Branch Network to ensure our branches are in the right locations which reflect the long-term changes in the way customers choose to bank with us.

“Retaining a sustainable Branch Network is extremely important to us and we need to ensure it is fit for the future.”
