You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Fence Houses Dental Practice

68 Station Ave N, Houghton le Spring DH4 6HT, UK – 0191 385 2622

After being put off going to the dentist many years ago by another dentist, Beatriz at fence houses was recommended to me when I had an abscess. So glad I went. From the friendly girls on reception to the way Beatriz explained everything she was going to do as I needed fillings and extractions has given me the confidence to continue going to the dentist. Felt nothing as I had the work done apart from the needle which was expected. Wish I'd known about her sooner. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I had our routine check-ups today with dentist Beatriz V Serrano who we see for every dental appointment and treatment. As always Beatriz puts us at ease and carries out all procedures with the utmost professionalism, care and expertise, both of us would like it to go on record just how grateful and happy we are to have such a fabulous dental surgeon look after our teeth. Thank you Beatriz.

A lovely Indian restaurant. I have never ever had a bad meal here. Food is delicious, remember it is cooked to order, so you may have a little wait. However, I personally would rather wait for freshly prepared food, than something prior cooked, frozen..... then quickly put in the Microwave
