The wind of change…

Following the absorption of Messrs Wakefield Crewdson’s Kendal Bank in 1893, the Bank of Liverpool embarks on an expansion that will introduce new Branches, sub-Branches and even agencies to the medium and small sized towns and villages of Cumberland and Westmorland.  Orton sub-Branch opens in 1895 and it is one of five sub offices to Kirkby Stephen that have been opened over the years. It is pictured here in its Martins days. Orton manages one year after the 1969 merger before the axe falls, and this lovely little sub-Branch becomes someone’s front room once more…
