Laneshawbridge lies about two and a half miles east of Colne. The Bank of Liverpool opens a sub branch there in 1911, adding to the portfolio of branches of the Craven Bank, that it aquired in 1906. Opening hours are just one hour each week, and it is surprising that the branch survives for twenty years before being closed down for good in 1931.

Throughout its life, Laneshawbridge is under the control of Colne Branch.  A number of the smallest sub-Branches are closed in the early 1930s, not only to consolidate and to remove over-representation, but also probably to help with the expense of building martins Bank’s lavish new HEAD OFFICE Premises in Liverpool AND its principal LONDON OFFICE, 68 Lombard Street.
