About Woolwich

Woolwich Building Society was re-branded to Woolwich in 1997. In August 2000, it was taken over by Barclays. As such, today, preexisting Woolwich mortgages are supplied Barclays.

Owing to the legacy that the Woolwich name carried, Barclays kept the Woolwich brand alive for a further 15 years.

As of 2007, the Woolwich name continued to be used as part of Barclays mortgage arm. This came to an end in 2015 whereby it became absorbed by Barclays as a whole. Today, all of these mortgages are Barclays-branded.¹
