Martins Bank operates a number of successful cattle market branches, many of them inherited from the various banks that came together to form the modern-day Bank in 1928. Many more were opened by Martins right up to the mid 1960s. Others have remained opened to this day, or have only recently been closed such as the Kendal and Lancaster Auction Mart branches.
