Stanwix is one of three sub branches to Carlisle that are opened between 1923 and 1928.  Along with the other two – at Dalston and Gilsland – Stanwix closes well before the 1969 merger with Barclays.  Stanwix sub-Branch is situated one mile due North of the City Centre on Scotland Road, and is one of a small parade of shops and businesses known (quite fittingly) as Stanwix Bank.  The only listing of opening hours that we can find for this branch is from 1929, when Stanwix is available for just half an hour each week on a Friday!  Despite this, the axe doesn’t fall for another thirty years and Stanwix closes down at the beginning of December 1958.
