Birmingham Midshires' roots date back to the mid-19th century. The organisation came about from the merger of over 50 building societies.
This culminated in the merger of the Birmingham & Bridgwater and Midshires Building Societies in 1986 to form Birmingham Midshires.
It was subsequently bought by Halifax in 1999, and became part of the Lloyds Banking Group when Lloyds bought HBOS in 2009. The Birmingham Midshires brand is now referred to by the group as a division of Bank of Scotland.
It focuses on savings accounts, and offers easy-access and fixed term accounts. It also provides Cash ISAs.
